Happy New Year to all!
It's always hard to believe how quickly time passes when you're faced with the dawn of another new year. Every year I'm convinced time has gone more quickly than the year before and I dream of the days when time seemed to babble on endlessly before me like languid streams. But alas, that was many, many, years ago and so it's on on to the future!
2013 was a solid year of love, loss, and learning. While I look back on the ups and downs from last year and reflect on what they have taught me, I can't help but think 2014 is going to be a big one. We have a lot coming up this year which will plunge me into moments of change over and over again. Not only will I be getting married, but I'll also be moving back to Canada, diving into (hopefully temporary) unemployment, finding a place to call our own and continually cooking and travelling up a storm! Each year gone by has given me lessons, and so hopefully I can use those to totally rock these coming 12 months.
This blog has also seen a lot over the last year, including some expected runaways in terms of popularity. Our trip to Vientiane, Laos has been wildly popular (with good reason, it was a fabulous adventure) along with these nutella-stuffed cookies, these double chocolate red wine cookies, and these old-fashioned ice-cream sandwhiches - now if only you could be dining on all of these while in Laos. Whoa. It would almost be too much to handle. Almost.
I'm hoping the next year allows room for more adventures in food and travel to allow more growth and settlement of this space in the interwebbed world. It's been a year to remember, so here's to making the next 365 days of adventure as memorable or more!
