Yesterday marked the one-year anniversary of a second glance!! When I sat down to write my first blog post, I didn't realize what a rewarding creative outlet this would become for me. Through blogging, I've found inspiration, escapism, affirmation and companionship. I can't say it's changed my life, but it has challenged to stretch myself in new, more creative directions in the kitchen, in my wardrobe and behind the lens of my camera. Making honeycomb, studding a jacket, and taking photos in -30C weather were firsts for me this year! If you have any feedback or suggestions for year two, leave them below or email me: firstname.lastname@example.org. One of the things I'd like to get better at is formatting my posts. Creating these thumbnails was victory enough for today; just ignore the awkward spacing (or send me info on how to fix it)! I didn't do a roundup of my food posts but the recipes are all listed here with links to the original post.
