On Monday, I had one of those “bad mommy moments.” You know – like when you forget that it’s your turn to bring the soccer snack (ummmmm … I remembered just in time!), or when you almost forget a majorly important birthday. (Please, please tell me I’m not the only one …)

Yeah. I’d forgotten my baby’s birthday. Ok, ok … in fairness, it wasn’t one of my human babies (… feeling a little redeemed …). It wasn’t even my puppy’s birthday (… so, not exactly worst.mother.ever, right?!?)

But it was my blog-baby’s birthday! Three years old!

Three years of learning, growing, and sharing my life and my recipes with all of you. Challenging, busy, frustrating and so rewarding … all bundled up together in one adventure. Three years!

But I honestly would’ve missed it completely if Gretchen (still our biggest cheerleader!) hadn’t sent me a crack-of-dawn text, filled with cake and confetti emojis. Geez, I love that girl! And if it wasn’t enough that she’d absolutely saved me from worst.mother.ever status, she even showed up later with flowers to celebrate, too! Best buddies just don’t get any best-ier than that!

Bouquet of big, bright pin and little white flowers.

So thanks to Gretchen, I still had plenty of time to celebrate! And what better way to celebrate than with millions of your very nearest and dearest?!?!

I got right to work, and dug deep into our analytics (yay – nothing says “celebration” like geeky math fun!), to see which of our posts have been the most popular from the last three years, as chosen by you – our readers!

Thanks for being with us on this adventure! Whether you’re one of our many friends who’ve been here from the very beginning, every step of the way … or one of the thousands of people who truly just found our site for the first time in the last couple days. Either way – we’re so glad you’re here!

Because, when you almost forget your baby’s birthday, there’s nothing that can redeem you more than throwing a party with millions of people to help celebrate!
