Celebrating 200

In all of the excitement and busyness that my life has been in the past couple of weeks, I neglected to celebrate a small, yet still significant milestone for me; my 200th post.

I'm a firm believer that life just moves way too quickly and for that reason, it's important for the to pause, even if it's just for a moment, to celebrate in the tiniest of ways, even if its the tiniest of things.  To me, writing my 200th post is something that indeed requires celebrating.  When I started this blog this past December, I never could have even begun to imagine all that this would mean to me and I've found a such a satisfying sense of purpose in sharing my recipe creations and food adventures with you.  In light of this, there are some posts that to me, just stand out as some personal favorites.  So for today's post, I thought a fun little way to celebrate this milestone was to share with you some of my personal favorites from my first 200 posts:

First there are the posts that mean something to me:
Then there are some favorite recipe creations:
And then lastly, some of my favorite pictures
Strawberry Salad with Homemade Lemon Poppyseed Dressing
Homemade Asian Noodle Soup
Homemade Pop Tarts

Sweet Corn, Tomato, Basil and Mozzarella Salad

Homemade Wonton Soup
Wine Glass over Menu at Sportello Restaurant
Musing on Seattle
'Maters for my Fire Roasted Tomato Pasta
Here's to taking a minute out of a hectic day to celebrate something important to you.  Cheers!
