IT'S BEEN A YEAR!
Back on October 12, 2016, Feast and Fandom got it's start with a product review. It's been a long road since that first day and nerves have run rampant through me as I have discovered a true joy in doing what I do on here. I remember the night I finally decided to put myself out there and talk from the heart about the things I love. It was late one night and my daughter had just fallen to sleep. I had been talking to my wife about doing a blog of some sort for a long time but had no idea what I wanted to write about. It was this night laying in bed that we started to brain storm.
She knew I needed something more than what I had been doing in the restaurant industry and she knew my passion for writing. Out of all of the ideas that we shot out, it was her that said to write about what I love. It was her who said movies and food would be great subject matter for me. I personally could not believe that I didn't think of it myself. From day one, this has never been about getting noticed or making money. It was purely meant as a hobby for me to enjoy and it has been ever since. Then we started talking about names for the blog. After lots of failed ideas, I blurted out Feast and Fandom and she immediately shot it down as she thought it was silly. We laughed about it and went to sleep.
The next morning, my wife called me while I was at work and said that she had rethought the Feast and Fandom name and told me that she had fallen in love with it. She then told me that she designed the website and came up with some logos for me to look at. I could not believe the way she supported me with this venture. With her design skills and ability, Feast and Fandom was born and ready to post by the time I was home from work. I decided that I would write my first review with "Stir It Up" (It's actually my second post as the first one was me saying hello to everyone). From there I've been very happy with the direction of this website and where our Instagram page has evolved into. It would be nothing without her.
My wife's birthday is tomorrow and I want to be special for her. I cannot celebrate a year of Feast and Fandom without celebrating her. She is a remarkable woman that does so much for people and never really gets the recognition she deserves. What I'm trying to say is that this post really isn't about celebrating Feast and Fandom. It's about celebrating you and all you have done for us. I love you. Happy birthday Sharon.
