I’m not sure how many of you have ever browsed my list of favorite blogs, but if you have, you may have stumbled upon Orangette, a blog about food. I found Orangette through Blogger’s Blogs of Note one day when I needed a little midday distraction, and I immediately fell in love with Molly Wizenberg’s writing style and recipes, even though I’m pretty much a disaster in the kitchen and would never attempt to cook one on my own.
Then, after about a month of reading Orangette, I started getting Bon Appetit magazine in the mail, courtesy of my unused and about-to-expire Continental Airlines miles. Again, I don’t really cook, but I do like to look at all the pretty pictures of the food, and one day, while doing just that, I was delighted to find that Molly had a column in Bon Appetit. (It is, indeed, a small world, er blogosphere, after all.)
Anyway, all of that to say that I am an avid fan of Orangette and Molly, which means I’m also an avid fan of Molly’s husband, Brandon, who she writes about from time to time, which is precisely why I was so enamored by today’s post about their wedding anniversary. Since I became a reader only recently, I totally missed the fact that the two of them met through the blog, a story that I happen to find completely and totally romantic. A few quick clicks here and there, and I had gone back in time from their first date to their wedding celebration (like little time capsules, these blogs), and I must say, it all made me sort of gooey inside.
So, if you find that your Tuesday is not going by fast enough and you’re in need of a little midday distraction or you just need a little love in your day, I encourage you to take a few minutes to read about the first date, the proposal, the wedding and the anniversary.
