Happy Six-Month Anniversary!

So excited! We are celebrating an anniversary! The Feathered Nester blog is officially six-months old today. First Post! I have had more fun with the blog than I ever imagined.

The Beginning

I started the blog on the heels of our spring break trip to Florida and the Caribbean. Oh gosh, what a trip it was! On our 7-day cruise, we had the Penthouse Suite of our ship. Not only did we have this lavish suite, but we had a hot tub on our balcony!

The suite was an amazing deal and I will have to share my story of how we scored it in a future travel post.

Bumps Along the Way

A few months into the blog, I was diagnosed with Meniere’s Disease. I haven’t posted an update on my condition lately, but I am happy to report that my condition is stable and manageable with diet and medication. It’s been months since I had a severe vertigo attack.

Through trial and error, I’ve been able to resume my morning cup of caffeinated coffee and have a glass of wine or two with dinner. Sodium does not seem to increase any of my symptoms, though I feel better when I avoid sugar and high-carbohydrate foods.

Plans for the Future

I would like to share more decor stories on the blog. It frustrates me to no end that I don’t have the time to tackle decorating projects around the house right now. But, I am almost done with school. The New Year will be bringing great changes around my house and blog.

Upcoming project! An Outdoor Kitchen – this photo is just an example…not a plan 🙂

 

Menu plans or weekly recipes? I’m still not sure where to go with them. Personally, I like the ability to print off recipes and I haven’t mastered that on the blog yet. So, the recipes are a work in progress. I may take on a “Top 5” recipes weekly format. Or I might start posting recipes every other week. Given me feedback on this!!

So Happy Anniversary and Thank You!

So, thank you for your readership. Let me know what you’d like to see going forward.
