Happy Belated 1st Birthday, fANNEtastic food!

OMG. I am so embarrassed.

I totally forgot my blog’s 1st birthday. Am I a horrible blog mom or what?!

It’s like in the amazing 80’s movie 16 Candles, when everyone forgets Sam’s birthday and she’s trying to give them hints all day long but nobody gets it.

All day on Saturday, my blog was clearly trying to tell me something, but I was too busy dreaming of Pacey and stalking the Leery’s house in Capeside to pay any attention.

I’m so sorry, little fANNEtastic food. Please accept this photo as compensation.

Oops, wrong guy.

Let’s try that again:

Ah. Much better.

Exactly 1 year and 3 days ago today, fANNEtastic food started with an introduction to my favorite tea mug. Little did I know what an adventure I was embarking on!
