My Dear Little Blog,
On this very day, you are celebrating your first birthday and I can hardly believe. Time just flies. It doesn't seem so long ago, I was discovering the food blogosphere and the idea of writing my own started to cross my mind, and was becoming a true itching. For a few more weeks, impressed by the talent and the creativity of my fellow food bloggers, I lacked the daring, with the feeling that I wouldn't be up to the job. But little by little convinced by Grégoire I decided that there would be a place for you and that you would make your way.
So I flung both of us into this adventure. You proved to be an extraordinary space of expression, a precious link towards new friendships, and of course a great way to nurture, else than in the kitchen, my love for the world of culinary matters. I would never have imagined the contentment that you would bring to me and I am truly happy that I went against my natural shyness. I take the opportunity of this letter, that Grégoire will surely read as well, to let him know how much I thank him for his unconditionnal support and encouragments. You wouldn't be here if it wasn't for him, and I am infinitely grateful to him.
Of course you grew at a quite irregular rythm, according to my availability and along the small and big events that filled my life this year. It has been a very busy year and I have to confess that at the moment all my energy both physical or mental is seized upon the very expected arrival of a little baby. So please, do not be cross with me, if I sometimes stay away from you a little more than I should.
I promise to dedicate as much time as possible to you during the upcoming months and I wish both of use many new posts, recipes and encounters.
I wish you a very happy first birthday!
* The lemon tartlet comes from the delicious bakery close to our place, called Les Cinq Sens. It will make Grégoire very happy later as he just loves them. I will have to wait a few more weeks to treat myself with pastries as the doctor said I shouldn't eat any sugar, because of gestational diabetes... As long as it's temporary, I'll cope with it!
