Today Completely Delicious turns five!
Who knew five years ago when I posted a little recipe for chocolate chip cookies that it would not only turn into an incredibly rewarding hobby but also a part-time job? Not me, but I’m so happy to be where I am.
I’ve come a long way in the last five years. From bad photos and a only handful of readers to an archive full of hundreds of recipes and an inbox full of support. Not to mention all of the meaningful relationships that have developed solely because of this website.
My weekends are often dedicated to recipe testing, my nights are spent editing photos, and seeing what’s new on Twitter is one of the first things I do every morning. It’s not quite what I imagined my life would be like five years ago, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Five years of blogging kind of feels like a big deal. To me it means that this is more than just a hobby, this is what I am doing with my life. And you know what? It’s not a bad life, I think I’ll stick around.
To celebrate, I baked cupcakes with a little bubbly. Yes, there’s sparkling wine right there in the batter. The cupcakes are light and flavorful and the strawberry buttercream frosting is the perfect topper. Indulging in a few of these cupcakes and sipping from a champagne flute is exactly how I want to spend today.
Thank you, dear readers. Whether you’ve been here since the beginning or you’re visiting my site for the very first time, thanks for letting me share my baking adventures with you.
Here’s to five more years, cheers!
