My blog, Hannahhotcakes, is 1 year old today so mojitos all round!
Twelve months ago, I sat nervously typing away as I put my thoughts and ideas into words and sent them out to be read by both friends and strangers.
170 posts later, I have documented a house move, our engagement, holidays, a new job, celebrations and lots of food!
In that time, I have pushed both my cooking and photography skills to try new and different things, found a new and creative outlet, had some rather lovely freebies and had lots of really encouraging comments and messages from people all over the world.
I have loved doing this and am happy to say that it still doesn’t feel like a chore. I am constantly thinking of new things to try, to eat, to taste, new places to visit and write about, and most importantly I’m really excited about what is to come.
I know I am not perfect, my pictures are sometimes a bit blurry and every now and again a spelling mistake creeps into my writing, but I keep trying to improve and move forward.
I have never really kept a proper diary before and often wish I had so I was able to look back on what I was thinking and feeling at different parts of my life. This blog feels like a picture book version of a diary and I do love looking back to remember events that I may otherwise have forgotten.
So, here is a heartfelt thank you/ gracias/ merci/ danke/ grazie to everyone who has visited my little corner of the internet and I hope you have enjoyed reading hannahhotcakes as much as I have loved writing it!
