It’s My Blog Birthday!!!

A year has passed since I started From Me To You and I could not have foreseen the incredible amount of support, love, community, and readership it has grown to today. When I started this blog it was just a place to share some of the many archives of images I have sitting in negative sleeves in my closet from projects past. I figured maybe someone would enjoy them?… A year later I barely have time to go look through old images as this blog changed into a place that drives me to create, inspire, explore and communicate as a photographer. I’ve grown professionally and personally as an artist through the comments, tumblr hearts and incredible emails regarding my work and lifestyle. Thank you everyone so much for coming to my blog so often to do exactly what it is I make pictures for- to see the images.

We shared dates nights with Dinner & A Movie

We paid our respects to one of the greats

We paid Old McDonald a visit

We spent some time out west in Texas

Giveaway! $25 Whole Foods Gift Card!

Whole Foods NYC is giving away a $25 gift card, From Me To You!

People pass down many things in families from photographs to heirlooms. What I want to know is, what is your best family recipe? Is it passed down from 7 generations? Is it something you make for your kids? A holiday drink recipe that wouldn’t be a proper family function without it? Or are you like me and have the recipe to a meal your grandmother fixed you growing up? If you don’t have a family recipe to share it could also be one of your own recipes you hope to one day pass down.

I shared my recipe with y’all, now I want you to share yours with me! Tell me a little background or story about your family recipe and post it along with the instructions in the comments below! I will select one recipe, make their dish, photograph it and post it here in one week to announce the winner who will receive a $25 Whole Foods gift card to any NYC location!

If you don’t win this round, follow Whole Foods NYC twitter (@wholefoodsnyc) as they have “Twitter Thursday” contests and give away $25 gift cards! I won once and here is how I spent the money honey!

The winner will be able to pick up the $25 gift card at any Whole Foods location in NYC that they specify.

This is my Grandma’s recipe book, what’s in yours?…
