Hi friends!  I know the end of the month is technically Monday, but Monday is New & Shiny Site Launch Day!, so I thought I’d do my monthly review post a day early!

august update

This has been a good month for both myself and this site.

Blog wise, several of my food posts gained momentum on Pinterest and Foodgawker, helping my page views this month.  I’ve also been pretty proud of my food pictures lately and have been getting really excited when they turn out well.

Behind the scenes I’ve spent the month working out the kinks in the new site design.  It’s meant some long nights staring at the computer fixing things, but I know it will be worth it in the long run.

I am also so excited I got the chance to share with you the flying story this month.  Aviation is a big part of my life and NOT talking about it just didn’t seem right anymore.  I’m so happy you guys were receptive to it.  Have I told you guys how amazing you are lately?  Because you are!

On a personal note, it’s been a packed summer with out of town visitors and trips.  It’s been full of fun, but I am looking forward to some down time  The hubs work gets much busier in September and October, so I think some calmer days are in my future.

So without further ado or fanfare, here are this months top posts! *cue the trumpets!*
