Adventures in Everyday Entertaining

Blogging One Year and Counting

Bourbon Seared Peaches

Here at Green Door Hospitality we are celebrating one year of blogging about the Adventures in Everyday Entertaining!  And what a year it has been!

Blogging has been such an incredible and rewarding experience.  Going into it, I knew that I was going to have a chance to push myself as a cook, a party planner, a writer, and as a person.  I had no idea that I was going to be meeting some of the most incredible and talented people through the blogging community.  You all have touched my lives immensely.  As much as I enjoy posting about my own culinary and hospitality adventures, I have found so much joy in reading and learning from all of you.  You are who push me to do better.  You are who inspire me with your own talents and creativity.  The connection that can be found with fellow bloggers is truly beautiful.  I now feel that I have dear friends all over the world!

Below are a few of the most popular blog posts from this past year.  I look forward to creating even more blogging connections in year two and sharing with you all that Green Door Hospitality has to offer!

    Congrats on one year, Kenley! You are truly a gem of a gal and such a talented blogger – – so generous with your recipes, projects, comments, and tutorials. Getting to know you and call you a bloggy buddy has been one of the highlights of my first year of blogging; I agree, that sort of connection is truly beautiful and one of the great unexpected gifts of clicking “Get Started” on Here’s to year 2 and all that it holds for you, friend!
