Thanks a Million

Willow Bird Baking just hit 1,000,000 all-time views. Typing something to you just didn’t feel like enough. Instead, I got out my sharpie-of-a-regrettable-color and wrote you a letter.

…A letter that you kind of have to be sideways to read. Okay, so I didn’t think through all the details. What can I say — I was filled with emotion!

Basically: Each and every comment, each and every visit, each and every kitchen triumph you’ve shared with me and with your families — each one has meant so much to me. Thank you so, so much.

    Thank you for all the great ideas and posts so we keep coming back! I’ve never shared with you that I finally took the cheesecake challenge about 3 months after you gave it. I made 1/2 a German chocolate cake from a favorite recipe along with the coconut icing and used your cheesecake recipe for the bottom. Loved it. Thanks for the inspiration.
