This month was a very special month because we celebrated Fork in the Kitchen’s FIRST BIRTHDAY! And my one year anniversary of being able to call myself a “food blogger”. I shared with y’all my story of how I finally started this blog on the birthday cake post, and in case you missed it, you should probably check out the Strawberry Coconut Cake to make life 1682X better.
BEHIND THE SCENES PHOTO SHOOT PICTURE:
Speaking of making life better, March was one of those months where life had other plans for me. Piles of laundry, growing larger by the week, due to the fact that the washer broke and was unable to be fixed. Then it was the dryer, but that was quite the little joke the Universe decided to play.
Luckily, I know how to relax. With the weather getting warmer and the sun staying out longer, my vitamin D levels were ready to be replenished. This can obviously only be accomplished by drinks on the beach…
A trip to Savannah was just what the doctor ordered, too! Romantic dinners, walks among the oak trees, delicious sweets – it couldn’t have been better.
March brought more life changes – a new job offer, a last day of a job, and goodbyes. It’s always bittersweet, but I’m looking forward to the new experiences. I can also check jury duty off of my bucket list. It could only have happened as it did to me.
Day 1 of selection: the power in the entire city was out. We waited. And waited. Which meant I walked around the little town of Burgaw, NC. I learned that its train depot was there before the city, and is the oldest in NC. This was told to me and a few fellow jurors by the mayor, whom we began chatting up outside of a powerless coffee shop, unbeknownst to us that he was in fact the mayor. Strange things, friends, strange things.
Day 2: The attorney’s never asked that I be excused after questioning me first round. I was officially selected a juror. Later that afternoon, after more waiting around, the trial never happened and I didn’t have to spend anxious nights worrying about being a juror. Life’s so funny sometimes.
Full of its life changes, ups and downs, and travels, March was a pretty fulfilled month. The brunches with bloodys, mimosas, donuts, and friends helped out.
