Happy New Year’s Eve! Today I wanted to take a minute to look back over 2015 and share some of my highlights.
2015 was a great year! Andrew and I got engaged in January, so this year was a whirlwind of wedding planning and buying our first house.
This year I celebrated my 2nd blogiversary. It was a big year for the blog! A Savory Feast grew by followers and pageviews into a full-time career.
+ A Savory Feast had nearly 400,000 pageviews this year!
+ I finished up at my part-time job and was able to switch to blogging full time this year.
+ When we bought our house, I was finally able to have my own kitchen! It’s so much fun to be able to spend time there working on recipes for the blog.
+ A Savory Feast’s combined social media followers are now over 12,000!
