FDD's 1st Anniversary...YEAH!! ... and my Bday!!

A year ago I started this blog on my Bday, and wow did I not know how my life would change!! First I was fiddling a bit with images and the design of the blog and here you see some other examples I was testing...

I just added the text now to this donkey that I had made a bit funkier...


But let me tell you a bit about the last year. It is just amazing how many friends and other bloggers I met while doing this daily blog! Just amazing, it still blows my mind! So many nice, interesting, funny, inspirational and great friends I have met via the world wide web and this blogging world.

I am really happy to have started this blog, which I just did as a sort of learning process, I started reading some blogs and thought how nice it would to keep my family and friends up to date with our ever changing scenery. But I didn't realize that so many other friends I would meet!! It made my life so much richer and fuller by knowing all these new friends, it is really great!!

At first I started reading design and fashion blogs, then I added photo blogs, food blogs, daily life blogs, adoption blogs, SA blogs and once you start reading these blogs and look at which blogs they read, then there is no ever ending lists of blogs... just amazing!! From one blog to the other blog, the designs are fun to see, the text and photo's are addicting to follow and the stories behind each person is just mind blowing. So much better to read a blog than to watch TV!!

Thank you all for being my friend in blogging land!! I became attached to your stories, your comments and your blogs!! Thank you Kate, Annet, Rosemary, Jen and Emm for becoming part of my world! These wonderful women and many more who are reading my blog and I am following theirs! Me being part of yours in so many ways, not only via the blog world, but some of you via Facebook as well and private emails which I look out for all the time :-)

Let's make 2009 another even better blogging year!!
Love you all!
Mireille

Happy blog anniversary! Thank you for the mention but most importantly, thank you for the wonderful South African blog that makes me proud of home and miss home but also makes me happy to show to other expats as a fine example of South African life!

Thanks, Mireille! I have so loved getting to know you and becoming friends! Your blog is great and I've really enjoyed following your life with those two great girls and hubby. I love the way you just live life and enjoy every moment! So hoping we get to meet sometime here in the states! Sorry, I only read this post today. Was exhausted this week and not online much. I am now back to my regular blogging schedule! :-)
