I can't believe it's already 2016! This year was full of so much change and growth. Looking back makes me beyond grateful.
Since the ball dropped last year, I moved into two different apartments, walked in my college graduation, swam a synchro solo, spent the summer in a grad program, started a new job, and finally saw the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. And through all that, I traveled from Lake Milton, to Beverly Hills, to Nagshead, to Poughkeepsie.
I watched Neil Gaiman chat about storytelling and childhood dreams. I got lost in One World Trade Center while visiting the Bon Appetit Test Kitchen. I got to see some of my favorite bands live (some twice) and discovered a musical community that makes a huge city more welcoming.
And through it all, there's always been something new to bake, and new books to read. With each new kitchen and oven came different systems and challenges, and I've tried to share everything I've baked. Thank you, kind viewer, for the love, encouragement, inspiration, and patience.
Thank you to everyone who've been there this year. You've made it so special. I can't remember a year where I met so many amazing, wonderful people who welcomed me into their lives and hearts. I'm so glad to know ya'.
