Year One


A year ago today, I published my very first post here on jentertaining. Looking back at my posts from beginning to now has been a fun exercise, and I am so excited to expand and bring more to the table moving forward. As the blog has continued to grow, the challenge to create and connect with new content still gets me as excited today as it did when I first started. I mean, washi tape on a stemless wine glass-who knew that thing would BLOW UP?

So instead of my usual {Pin This} post, here are some of my favorite posts from my first year as a blogger. If you are new to jentertaining, take a look around and let me know what you think!

post love: healthy summer menu // a look at my place // stemless wine glass washi labels //beach to table

I did want to mention a few people that have helped make this first year possible…

Sally Brown (aka. Mom): The queen of entertaining and the woman who taught me at a young age the importance of a not just cooking 101, but of bringing people together.

Fellow Bloggers: I have met some amazing people through blogging, and many of them I now consider dear friends. This community welcomed me with open arms, and has truly felt like a second home.

Marc: I know it might seem odd to thank my ex-boyfriend, but Marc was there from the beginning and a true supporter of this crazy idea. While life doesn’t always work out the way you plan, the people you have in it along the way help drive you in the right direction-Marc was one of those people.

My girls (you know who you are): They have sat through dinners, cocktail parties, and everything in between whether I was photographing one too many meals, or adjusting the way they held a wine glass.

Thank you for checking out this little corner of the internet and I can’t wait to see what is to come in year two!

Happy Monday!!


  1. Happy 1 Year Birthday! You’ve done such an amazing job just in 1 year.. I can’t imagine where things will be in 5!
