FOODalogue quietly passed its 6th anniversary this month … no fanfare, no giveaways … not even me, who birthed it, thought much about it. I guess because it has become so much a part of my life and identity so it was just another day.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. ♥♥♥ Mi casa es su casa.

In case you wondered what being a food and travel blogger is all about … well, it’s about a lot of work most days.
It’s about being plugged in and engaged from your first waking moment to lights out. Every day.
