thelittlekitchn look who is 12 today!! I can't believe he used to fit in our hands. at over 50 lbs, wonder if we could recreate this photo? not long after we got married 12 years ago, we adopted this little guy and named him Charley. he had no name & he was the runt of the litter. should have seen it coming because his $45 adoption fee turned into $1200 in vet bills the first 2 months we had him, he was a very sick pup! at 5 yrs old, he was diagnosed with a pancreatic condition (called EPI) that requires lots of medication (24 pills a day to be exact). he has had two hip surgeries (FHO) and back surgery in the last 2 years and I'm happy to say he's doing great!!! curtis noted yesterday that charley probably feels much better today compared to when he was younger because of his hip and back problems. I'm such a sap and we love this little guy so much...I still can't believe he's 12!! Happy birthday, Charley!! #fb #dogofinstagram 3h

thelittlekitchn I want to say #thankyou to each & every one of you. Tmrrw is July 20th & I just realized when someone reminded me the other day...July 20, 2012 was my last day at my job. I was a software engineer & I was laid off. I called my husband & told him the news & his exact words were, I know what you want to do, so you should just do it. I could never have imagined that I would be running my own business, doing freelance food photography, doing my blog full-time & getting to travel. So thank you for all of the love & support over the years. I'm excited to share that I'm working on an ebook for food bloggers & food entrepreneurs...my way of giving back & sharing what I have learned. #grateful & #thankful 1w

thelittlekitchn baking today with @kokocooks was fun!!! this is real life, first time making macarons at home today...we think we didn't whip the egg whites enough, I had the oven too hot so they are a little brown on top & my pistachio macs are too big and misshapen...BUT they taste amazing! will keep working on it!! I'm so proud of us! #instagood # #tlk 3w
