happy one year to me!
that’s right. it’s the official first birthday of julie golean!
one year ago today i sat in my living room brainstorming with the bestie of what a good name for a “food blog” would be. what’s a food blog asked everyone. well..i didn’t know. i just knew that i loved food, i loved being healthy and i wanted scratch that needed a place to connect to others that had the same passion for food, fitness, & fun.
and here i am.
want a good laugh? check out my first post..if you need anymore validation that i’m a popcorn monster. well you’ll find humor in the fact that that’s the title of the first post.
i remember taking my first picture of food. i was making an omlette. deej & jenna thought i was a ridiculous creep. i stood by it. kept trucking, snapping shots. then newman’s own came to my door. and when the golean’s opened that box, well jaws dropped and julie golean was finally taken a little more serious.
this year i’ve found my happy place with food, started my first job out of college, left my first job out of college, started a new journey with graduate school, turned 23, learned to love running, ran my first 10k, signed up for a marathon, injured my hip, didn’t run a marathon, experimented with food & most importantly finally settled into a happy relationship with myself.
this year has been crazed. and i’m so proud of how far i’ve come in a year, how my picture taking skillz have vastly improved and most importantly the relationships i’ve formed with fellow bloggies. you guys. my friends and my foodie soulmates ;) withouth you guys i wouldn’t have found oatmeal, or cottage cheese, or green monsters & greek yogurt. i wouldn’t have discovered a love for oat bran, & almond butter, pb2, stacking snackplates & all things fiberific..
i guess what i’m
dying trying to say is that i love this community, you guys and how blogging as changed who i am and who i want to be. so thank you for that. thank you for reading, and laughing when things aren’t funny, for putting up with my sass, and my wit and listening to me complain all the time from time to time.
so here’s to another year of us hanging out, chatting it up & bowls and bowls and bowls of my beloved popcorn.
now that it’s been an official year of blogging i’m thinking of doing a few q&a posts. so with that ask away! is there anything your dying to know about my life, my workouts, my food, me?! if not well then there goes that idea. haha
peace, love & chicken grease ;)
