Wednesday Ramblings | One Year of Ramblings

One Year of Ramblings

Sometimes, when I am writing my weekly “ramblings” post, I feel like I am sitting down to chat with a friend over a cup of steaming coffee.  So for that, thank YOU.  Grab a mug of your favorite brew and chat with me.

Thank you for reading, for commenting, for agreeing, for disagreeing, for encouraging, for laughing, for crying, for just being here.

After toying with some “thanksgiving” posts, I turned to “wordless Wednesday” posts that were not anything near wordless and from there Wednesday Ramblings were born.  Today marks one year straight of my weekly thoughts, my faith, random rants, Instagram sharing, and question-asking

I love the food – I’ll always love the food.  But I’ve learned a ton about my readers, and about myself, in these posts.  They stretch me a bit, they aren’t always easy, and I believe they make my little space here a little more personal.  I have come to learn that, while people often connect through food, I really crave a deeper connection to people and these posts have allowed me to do that.

And I’m so grateful that you allow me to share.  So, here’s to another 52 weeks.  Cheers to you, my friends.

    I have not yet read your wednesday rambling posts yet i love ramblings on any other days. Congratulations on making it a full year. We all bloggers connect through food but i totally agree how it is a great feeling to connect with similar minded people on different.

    And cheers to you, I think it’s cool when we go off the food topic every once in a while. Yes we all are foodie nuts, but we’re all still moms, dads, husbands, wives, and lots more! Keep rambling :)

    I agree, it doesn’t have to be all food all the time. I love seeing peoples vacation pictures, their messy kitchens, their restaurant adventures. it makes this all real.

    • Cassie replied: — November 16th, 2012 @ 2:52 pm

      Exactly. Thanks, Cathy!

    Cassie, is your blog really only one year old?? I find that so hard to believe! You are amazing and one of my latest blogging inspirations!

    amy @ fearless homemaker — November 16, 2012 @ 2:55 pm

    Cheers! I love your Wednesday Ramblings. To me, anyone can post tasty food + pretty pics (ell, not just anyone, but you know what i mean), but it takes something deeper to expose more of your thoughts + real “self” to your readers. That’s one of the things that makes your blog different from others, + i love that!

    • Cassie replied: — November 16th, 2012 @ 3:17 pm

      Thank you so much Amy, that is so sweet!

    I love your weekly “ramblings” and I agree – I’ll always love the food, but it is just that much more with a person behind it, especially a wonderful person like you. Anyone can make beautiful, delicious food, but there’s a reason I want to check out YOURS. Keep up the great work :)

    • Cassie replied: — November 17th, 2012 @ 8:36 pm

      Thank you so much, Anna! You are wonderful and I am so blessed to have gotten to know you recently! xoxo
