happy birthday, food and foto!

11 Mar

today is food and foto dot com’s first birthday!  woohoo!  i’m making my favourite snack, amazeballs, in celebration and instead of cake. 🙂

on this day in 2012, i created a wordpress website and turned it into a dot com.  food and foto was created with the idea of educating readers on healthy eating options as well as sharing my passion for fotography.  it has since molded into a collaboration of recipes, ramblings, and images from my canon.  with over 220 posts, i must say this blog has transformed into such a fun and healthy outlet for me to share the things i love most.  i am humbled by the amount of support from the wordpress community, and i am honoured to have as many followers as i do. my dream is to see this blog transform into a lifestyle blog that inspires people to create.  i enjoy cooking and sharing recipes, but i also enjoy sharing information about overall health and wellness… and living a simple life.  and since i’ve become rather good at manifesting, i’ll just throw this out there –

my dream is to make this my FULL TIME JOB!  and it can happen!

and so, now i am brainstorming new ways to tailor this blog into something slightly different.  i like consistency, but i am also a huge proponent for change and i think it’s important to keep things fresh.  so i’m working behind the scenes over the next few days, coming up with new ideas for this ever-growing blog, food and foto dot com.

let’s reflect for a moment, shall we?

i believe i’ve come a long way since my first post

and in case you missed it, here’s my first recipe blogpost

one of the most delicious recipes i created was this

although – it has a very close tie with this

okay, you may want to try this, and this, and this, too…

alright – and no doubt, you may want to throw a party just to make these

one of my favourite blogs i’ve ever written is right here

and speaking of cleansing, people always ask about my 5-day DIY version…

but don’t get me wrong, i’ll put away about a dozen of these, as well…

it’s all about balance, really. balance, and this

i also sometimes get all philosophical and talk about stuff like this

and don’t forget – i do a lot of other things with my camera – see?!

i want to thank you ALL from the depths of my soul for being an avid reader, for following and taking time to comment, and for making me really feel like part of a community!  you are my muse, the reason{s} i keep this up, the fire i need to stay inspired.  YOU, my faithful readers — you know i do this for you, right?!  i do it for me because i love it, but i do it for you because you appreciate it.


here’s to many many more years of health, food, and fotos!  xxoo
