Way back when.. like 2008, the Kiwi had a blog called “The Cotter Chronicles.” It was there that I started guest posting with nutrition tips and recipes. He would document his training, races, events, my recipes, our travels, updates, and weekly food news. Pretty clever eh? Yes, that’s how this whole blog thang started.
I’m an old blogger. Boy how a lot has changed since then, in our life and in the business of blogging in general. And you know what? I miss those days. I miss sharing more life shenanigans, his training, my recipes, other people’s recipes, and so on and so on.
Hence why I am here today. Welcome to the first edition of the new COTTER CHRONICLES. A place where we can share life updates, articles, links to lurk, food and recipes to try, weekly food news, and so on and so on. Consider this a link love meets coffee talk. Sound good?
EVENTS and TRAVEL:
We celebrated my best friends baby shower last weekend with a happy hour shower down town. An outdoor German sausage house (Bangers) filled with gluten free beers, brats, wine, and kombucha on tap for the mama to be. Now that’s my kind of baby shower!
The next day, the kiwi then headed to vegas for a bachelor party. Um, I have no pictures. Although he did show me one picture, which is hilarious and totally “the Hangover” relatable. Needless to say it will not make it on the blog.
