Looking back on our first year

The days after Christmas and New Year’s always get you thinking. Spending time with friends and family, looking back on another year that’s flown by. And what a year we’ve had! A lot has happened between launching our blog at the beginning of this year and now. We thought it’d be fun to share the highlights of our first TGATD year with you!

We were quite surprised with the outcome of our most popular blog posts! Especially the Greaser’s best read post, being a very specific variation on our Mai Tai cocktail recipe. But hey, glad we got to show you something new! It’s fun to see the Doll’s style posts also seem to inspire you.

We really enjoy writing blog posts and it’s great to see you love reading them! We’re happy to get cracking on writing more articles!

Looking back on our first year

It has been an amazing first year! We were very excited to start our blog on January 1st, last year and we’re incredibly happy we’ve received so much positive feedback! Aside from working on our blog, a lot has happened in 2015. We moved into our new home after completely remodelling the place, celebrated our four-year-marriversary, we were guests at the Doll’s brothers’ wedding, we enjoyed a lot of cocktails at the Vavoom with friends, took a little trip to Amsterdam for some more cocktail fun, we visited Bruges and celebrated Christmas with friends, family and a whole lot of presents.

It’s the first day of the new year and we have a lot of great plans for 2016. We’ll let you know what we’re going to be up to, soon. Thank you for an incredible first year!
