Virginia is for Cheese Lovers (Part II of II)

Virginia Is For Cheese Lovers (Part II)

 

Earlier this month I attended the American Cheese Society (ACS) Conference in Richmond, VA. I wrote a post about my first two days at the Conference that you can read here. Due to some personal health issues, I had to take a break from working on the website for a little bit, but now I'm returned and ready to talk about the final two days I spent at the conference, learning about dairy farming and climate change, sober pairings, and of course - the awards and festival of cheese!

American Cheese Society Conference (Part I of II)

Virginia Is For Cheese Lovers (Part I)

 

Last week I got to attend the American Cheese Society (ACS) Conference in Richmond, VA. The week was jam packed with new cheese, new friends, new information, and new ideas.

*This "little" blog post became very long (lol), but I think it's a good insight into the daily life!

Welcome!!!!

Welcome!


Howdy everyone!! I'm so glad you're all here!

If you've followed me for a while you probably know this website has been a long time coming. It's also been a TON of work, during some very stressful months. Even just last night, there was a giant formatting issue which I spent several hours fixing (rip my sleep schedule).

But it's finally finished, and as someone with no coding experience and no computer experience, I'm very very proud of being able to bring to life exactly what I had envisioned for this site, and I hope you all love it!
