It’s is an exciting day on pumpkin & pb, because GET THIS…. this little blog is turning THREE today!!! <— insert all the party emojis here
I cannot even fathom the idea of this blog being around for three whole years. When I pressed publish on that first post back in 2014, I wasn’t sure it if would last 6 months, let alone 36 months! Seriously, there are no words.
Just kidding…. there are words 😉
When I look back on these three years of blogging and connecting with all you lovely readers (and all the background work that comes with it), only warm thoughts come to mind. Seriously! I’m not exaggerating. I’ve loved every second of it!
Working on this blog has been such a growing experience for me, both creatively and socially. Not only have I learned more about cooking and recipe development and photography than I ever could have imagined, but I’ve also met some of the most incredible like-minded people through this blog.
Who knew that a combination of food and the internet could bring so many people together in this crazy, wonderful food blogosphere?!? It may just be my favorite part. Well, that, and all the food 😉
So onto the big birthday! We’re celebrating this little toddler of a blog with a PUMPKIN & PEANUT BUTTER treat! Literally. Pumpkin Peanut Butter Energy Balls! So fitting.
Let’s face it, we already knew this pumpkin and peanut butter flavor combo was just magical in the fall. Like in these Pumpkin Peanut Butter Pancakes. Gahh amazinggg. But now we’re adding in some caramel-y dates and nutty coconut— aka we’ve got a REAL party on our hands!
And to make these even better, all you need are SIX ingredients and 10 minutes to make them. Happy birthday indeed!
So before I leave you today, I need to end by saying THANK YOU.
Thank you, dear readers, for showing up so regularly to this little corner of the internet. Thank you for your kind comments, your helpful feedback, your caring words. Thank you for reading my mostly-pointless-banter and life happenings, and not getting sick of me (yet 😉 ). Thank you for sharing your pictures of my recipes; it truly makes my day to see how they turn out in your kitchens all over the country! Thank you for supporting this little blog that has had such a big impact on my growth and has truly enriched my life in more ways than I can count.
You guys are truly the BEST.
