An Anniversary

Today marks the one year anniversary of creating this blog. A blogiversary? Oh my little blog. I love you.  Happy 1st birthday.

Never in a million years did I think Exquisite Banana would become such a huge part of my life. It's kind of crazy, actually. It started as a way to catalog all of the random bits I found interesting and has since morphed into so much more. Wow. This space has introduced me to incredible people, stories, inspirations and ideas. It feels a little strange to be getting emotional over a blog, but I am. It means a lot to me and I am proud of it.

Thank you, all of you, for reading. I can't wait to see where the next 365 days take us.



  1. Congratulations! I recently stumbled across your blog from some other blog I stumbled across too. You are a very creative person and you have put a lot of work into your blog - I enjoy perusing your ideas. I put your blog on "follow".

  2. Happy Blog Anniversary! It has been great getting to "know" you...I will continue to enjoy reading!

  3. Elizabeth, thank you for the sweet words. I am so happy you are here and look forward to building a relationship over the coming weeks. I appreciate all of my followers more than I can say :)
