Since Stephanie is the person who got me into reading food blogs in the first place, I thought she deserved a special post for her birthday!!!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY GIRLIE PIE!

If Steph and I were dating, our story would be the cutest.  Since she is dating Josh and not me, it will just have to remain the cutest friends story. Steph and I went to college together in DC and had the same French class together my sophomore year, her freshman year. We became best class friends…you know, the person you always sit next to and discuss all the details of your life with but you never really see outside of that one class?? Well, the next year I went to France for study abroad and of course Steph went her junior year but that was a year later so we never had class again and we totally lost touch.

Then, the year after I moved to LA, Steph was finishing up an internship at a PR firm in DC and decided that she was moving out to the west coast with her boyfriend, who was planning to attend med school in LA.  The people at the company suggested she get in touch with their intern from the previous year who had also moved out to California after graduation. YES, that intern was me!! How weird is it that we had the same job?! Anyway, so I get an email from Steph, followed up with a message on my Facebook after she saw my photos saying, “I thought your name sounded familiar; did we used to be best friends in French class?!”

YES Stephanie, we DID!!! We reunited in LA at the Griddle for massive pancakes and it was love at first sight and the rest is history. Steph is the person who motivated me to quit my last PR job that I hated so much when she went back to school last summer. She’s also the person who got me reading food blogs and eating such weird and interesting foods!! I can also thank Stephanie for my pizza stone, some amazing cookbooks, my reading of the entire Twilight saga, Easter brunches, my purple Kaitlin purse AND an awesome, amazing supportive friend.
