Happy Anniversary with Fresh Squeezed Lemonade!

Today marks the 2 year anniversary of The Salted Spoon! I can hardly believe it it's been 2 years already!

Those of you who've been with me since the beginning know it took a little time to find my blogging groove. For you The Salted Spoon newcomers - I WELCOME you!

Thank you for following, supporting and chatting with me as I journey along in my foodie adventures.

On this special day, I am happy to celebrate a blog I truly enjoy with an ice cold glass of homemade lemonade!

It's been HOT around here - nearly 100 degrees! What a better way to celebrate than with a refreshing glass?! Bottoms up.
