Look around. See something different? Okay, A LOT different.
Last Saturday May 2, 2009, Dessert Comes First turned 4 years old. And looking at the calendar, how apropos that I’m writing this post on the 4th of May. It’s been 4 years since that rainy and dark afternoon when I holed myself up in my library and lit a flame to my food obsessions by creating an online home for them. What followed next were flares alternating with smoldering embers, reflective of my current food states of ecstasy and ennui. It’s been a wild ride, truly; one that I could never have expected but everything I could ever want. And more.
I’ve changed immensely in the last four years, both my food tastes and how I am as a person. I imagine that you, reader, have too. Thank you for being with me every post of the way. I do appreciate your emails and no, I don’t mind being approached at the malls and restaurants (and once in the washroom!) with the question, “Are you Dessert Comes First?” You know who you are.
One thing that’s the same after four years: I still get bored very easily. So that explains the new look of the site. It’s brighter, more gleeful. Because four years of maintaining a food blog is nothing to sneeze at and more than anything, I’m grateful to still be around.
