Saturday marked 5 years of the Dabble’s existence. No kidding. 5.whole.years.
I haven’t been around much lately and when I have I’ve been all “look what I’ve (we’ve) done to the house” or “look who likes what I (we) do.” Which seems as though I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be at this point in life.
I think much of that was made possible because I wanted to put myself out there and started here. Trying to connect with others who enjoy their passions as much as I do. Those who have a strong zeal for something, anything in life. I revere and connect with those folks. People, such as yourself, who like to use quality ingredients with a seasonal focus of the home cookery variety. People who enjoy sharing their lives and finding the odd events life brings funny and something that bonds us all (or should). People who enjoy taking something most others see as junk and making it into something special (like furniture/a house/simple ingredient…hint hint those are my areas of interest…and by no means the only things I speak of). It started here and it lead me to follow other passions.
No one would have found me if I didn’t start here. I feel honored and humbled that anyone even cares. I just do what I do and if it sparks interest (or doesn’t), well then, there it is.
My life is completely different from 5 years ago in the best ways ever. (My standards for myself anyway. You gotta set your own idea of success.) I thank you if you’re still here. I’ll be back.
I don’t say OMG very often but this has been an amazing OMG week with two features on some awesome, inspiring sites. The first was for my wallpaper front dresser at Apartment Therapy and today’s spotlight is over at House*Tweaking where Dana interviewed me about our Ikea kitchen reno. It was an honor to be chosen by her since she is one of my absolute favorite bloggers. Love both of those sites! Take a look.
