Happy Birthday, Living and Loving in L.A.!

Today, Living and Loving in L.A. turns one year old! Let's take a look back at how far we've come in a year of 258 posts with some of my favorite moments.

My first recipe was topped with bacon.

Right there we've come pretty far, you know, considering I'm now a 95% vegan vegetarian. 

I also used to "sign" all of my photos. Until I realized that took FOREVER and made posting more than one photo more of a hassle.

Along the way, I also trained for a marathon.

I got a new job where I now travel to China a LOT. (Case in point - I'm there right now.)

All in all...I think we've been through a lot. And what will the next year bring? Who knows. What I do know for sure is that I'll be here...posting every minute of it. Thank you for reading, for commenting, for keeping me going. Thank you for being my biggest fan!
