• Ya’ll. One year ago today I had my first interview for my current job. It was the beginning of the rest of my life. Every day I am so happy that I am where I am now.
  • Also one year ago today I found this running in front of my former office and had to use a lint roller to get her white hairs off my pants before said interview. I can’t imagine not having this cowdog now.
  • I am so excited to paint my toesnails this awesome minty green color I bought on a whim at Target last week, but I can’t seem to follow through with it.
  • I swear I’m getting the food photography wrap up posted soon. It’s just taking a while, y’know.
  • But on the flip side, I have a lot of awesome recipes coming, inspired by so many local ingredients. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Columbia, South Carolina is on the edge of becoming KNOWN for this abundance of kick ass local food. It just is. It really is. We can only get over being known as the people whose eyes Mark Sanford pulled the wool over by shouting out our attributes rather than our downfalls. Talk positively about South Carolina once today. Tell me how it goes.
  • And just cause it is about a subject that needs more discussion, check out this month’s Free Times article, featuring a terrific recent graduate who really knows his stuff when it comes to food security.
  • You know the feeling when people praise your work and you’re like, “Really?! For reals, you’re not just saying that to be nice?” Yeah, I’ve been feeling that a lot this week, and it’s only Wednesday. Thanks for every word, everyone. I really appreciate it, much more deeply than you can ever imagine.
  • Is it too late to be signing up for Foursquare? Cause I just did, today. In 2013, yes, I know.
  • And tomorrow is mine and Patrick’s FOUR YEAR wedding anniversary. It’s also approximately SEVEN years together.

See the guy in the white robe using a Bible to cover his head?
