What to Expect

I’m going into 2012 with a revamped blog design. Someday. Soon. I just have to put the finishing touches on it.

There will of course be food. And more food. And sweets. Each month I’ll be inviting a blogger to post a favorite recipe for Sweet Tooth Friday. I just know I’m not the only one who craves sweets.

I’ll be adding photos to my Etsy shop {which is sadly empty right now}. I will. I WILL.

And…you tell me. What would you like to see in 2012?

Last but not least, if you have a favorite post from 2011, your’s or someone else’s, leave a link to it in the comments below so we can all read it.
