Looking back at 2014, Looking forward to 2015

by Wendy Copley on January 5, 2015

Happy new year! I hope you had a fun, restful, and joyful holiday season. I’m excited to start a new year and I’ve been enjoying looking back on the year that has just passed.

To wrap up 2014, I made a video showing all of the 365 bento boxes I packed throughout the year. (No, I’m not claiming to have packed one a day — some days I packed three bentos, other days I packed zero. Though it’s cool that it worked out to one per day on average!)

365 Bento Boxes in 60 Seconds:

Phwew! That’s a lot of lunches.

Changes are Coming:

I also wanted to take a minute to fill you in on some changes coming to Wendolonia this year. The biggie is that I’m no longer going to be posting The Week in Bentos. I took a good hard look at the amount of time I was putting into these posts (a lot) and compared it to the number of people who are reading them (not many) and decided it no longer makes sense for me to devote so much time to a weekly wrap-up in this particular format.

But fear not! I will still be taking daily lunch photos and posting them to the Bento Box Gallery and I hope this continues to serve as a valuable resource to those of you who are looking for lunch-packing ideas. This morning I posted the TWO THOUSANDTH photo to the gallery, so there is tons of inspiration in there! I’m also going to be making a big push in the coming months to ensure that every photo in the gallery is properly tagged and updated with a title and at least a brief description.

And I will continue to post lots and lots of bento photos to my blog — just not every photo.  Instead of weekly posts, keep an eye out for themed lunch round-ups, lots of bento ideas and more frequent tutorials.

Thanks for reading Wendolonia! The year ahead is going to be fantastic!
