Rachel's Table

Let’s Get This Party Started

Tomorrow is my blogiversary!

One year ago, I hit the publish button and my first post jettisoned into the blogosphere. When I started Rachel’s Table I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I had no idea what lengths I would go to or ridiculous things I would do to not only find the best, local foods, but also inform and mostly entertain you. YOU, dear readers, are the reason I write this blog. YOU, loyal readers, are the reason I stay motivated to post. YOU, lovely readers, are the reason I muddled through accomplished all of the following activities. I do it all for you:

I befriended the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

I became a farmer

I embodied Katniss Everdeen

 I stopped buying olives and hummus

I gardened for the first time in my life

I drank all the wine

I drank all the beer

I rapped and danced

I held chickens

I embarrassed myself

I foraged

I thought I was funny

I played Peppermeister Roulette

I became a restaurant critic, movie critic, food stylist, journalist, artist and photographer

Tomorrow, on my blogiversary, I’ll celebrate in style with a few other bloggers and lots of champagne. But to hold you over until I tell you all about it, I made this card. Just for you.

You know I don't get paid to do this, right? YOU are my only compensation. Worth it.

  1. Hold on! You are partying tomorrow and I wasn’t invited? How dare you. The nerve. I am offended deeply!

    Oh, wait . . . 😉

    But I might actually be offended that you included a picture of your pretty feet up there. That’s my schtick, Rache. Don’t be treading. :p

    Happy almost Blogiversary!! Celebration will commence in 5 . . . 4 . . . 3 . . .

    • My flat, square feet are no match for your pedicured toes, Misty! Lovely to actually SEE you yesterday (now I don’t have to picture you with a question mark on your face all the time.)

      Cheers to finding our “tribe”! 🙂

  2. Happy anniversary, Rachel!! I can’t believe you’ve only been blogging one year. I love the photo collage. I don’t think I’d ever tire of seeing your old photo that Angie had gracing her blog…your hair was even higher than mine.

  3. I can finally comment!!!! Huzzah! And speaking of huzzah – happy 1st blogoversary!!! I’m soooo happy I got to toast to that in person – how lucky am I?! Please feel free to cook for me any time you celebrate a future milestone. 13-month blogoversary party, anyone?

    The photo collage is GORGEOUS.
