This is the first time I’ve done a blog birthday post… somehow last year it got lost in the shuffle, perhaps it’s because I was caught up in my July Secret Supper launch! Anyhow, here we are at my blog’s 2nd birthday and I can hardly believe I’m sitting here writing this post for you! So much in my life has changed in the last 2 years and I’m so grateful to be blessed to pursue my dreams in such a creative, life giving way.
I’ve never grown as much as I have since starting my blog, in so many areas of my life and wanted to thank each of you for following along in my journey and for being as amazingly supportive as you have been! Excited to bring this delicious recipe for a Honey Elderflower Cake to you as a celebration!
So you might ask what I’ve learned and what the journey’s been like? Well, it’s hard to describe it here in one paragraph (it’s more like a 2-3 hour coffee date topic!), but to sum it up, it honestly has been incredible, and incredible in every sense of the word. I’ve never worked so hard, felt so worn out, yet felt so refreshed and liberated in my core. I always knew I was gifted with creativity, hosting, cooking and administration, but never in my life could I have imagined all my strengths coming together in one area. I honestly never knew that there was such a thing as being a food photographer and stylist – just was completely out of my realm.
I’ll tell you this, if you love something and are passionate about it, run…. run hard and pursue what your heart beats for, because you never know what can happen. Here I am writing this post 2 years to the day of launching by blog in 2014 and I just put my notice in at my office job TODAY! Somehow I’ve built this passion into a thriving business and it’s absolutely surreal. I couldn’t have done it without my loving and supportive dear family and friends, and also to you, who’ve been with me along the way (whether that be just recently or since the start!).
I hope you feel inspired to create, and if the first thing you do after this post is make this cake or simply spend time with the people you love, I will feel as though it’s all been worth it.
Cheers to another year ahead of creativity and inspiration!
