Thanks, Santa!

First blog post written at my new MacBook! I love it! It's a bit of a hassle getting everything set up - mail, contacts, bookmarks etc - but it'll be fabulous when it's all done, I'm sure. I was really good this year, apparently, since Santa decided to get me this!

And well, it *has* been quite a year! It seems to have gone by so quickly. The main event, obviously, was the birth of our son Titus, in May. He's already seven months and growing up so fast. It's quite amazing - I never expected to love life with a baby, but I do. The blog has been suffering a bit - not only because I haven't been cooking as much as before, but mostly because I haven't really felt the urge to sit down and write. I'll try to be better next year!

I downloaded something pretty cool - it's a little program called OmmWriter and it's designed to make writing much more like... actual writing, I suppose. It's full screen, so you don't see all your other programs, and thus, you're not disturbed. So far, I'm liking it. It's very serene. I'll try to use it to write a bit more next year - actual blog posts, rather than just recipes.

I don't say this often enough, but you mean so much to me. I would have given up on the blog long ago, if it wasn't for you - my readers. You are very important in my life - I appriciate you very, very much. Thank you. And happy holidays!

Happy holidays! And thank *you* for the inspiring tips and recipes. I think I've started appreciating spices thanks to your blog, so I'd say you're really doing a great job. Thank you again!

Thank YOU for the great recipes thoughout the year! I've spread the word among my book club friends, who have become fans of your blog as well. I actually don't think you have slacked at all since becoming a mother, quite the opposite.

Hej Anne - God Jul och Gott Nytt År till dig och familjen.
Ville bara säga tack för din fina blogg och alla goda recept. Jag går tillbaka till din blogg lite då och då när jag vill ha något nytt att laga till middag eller något godis att ha till helgen. Ditt index är superbra! Kram från South Carolina!
