Readers, how do I even thank you enough? Where do I even start?
One year and one day ago, I posted a recipe I knew M and I loved and I figured you all would like a whole lot, too. One year and one day later, that post has gotten nearly 1.6 million hits. Yes–1,600,000-with seven places and five zeros. I don’t even know what to say. In my three-and-a-half years of blogging, I’d barely topped 500,000 hits. What a difference a year and a really good chocolate chip cookie recipe makes.
I know a simple thank you isn’t even close to enough, but I’m afraid it’s all I can really say from behind my laptop. You’ve all taught me to dream bigger, push harder, and remember that even the simplest of things–chocolate chip cookies, a cup of coffee on a chilly morning, an afternoon spent snuggled under a blanket with someone you love–can sometimes bring the most comfort. Readers, just like these cookies, you truly are the best ever.
