happy 1st birthday to me!

Author: angiem, 11 01st, 2009

Aren’t birthdays exciting?  That wonderful day which comes but once a year is truly the one time each of us gets spoiled.  And if we don’t, we should.  I always get a rush of unexpected happiness when my birthday comes around.  My lovely hubby and darling babies know just what to do to make it extra nice.  And then of course, my wonderful friends remember me with fondest wishes.  I float on this love and attention from the moment I open my eyes until I go to sleep.

One of the most amazing things about starting this blog, was meeting so very many like-minded people.  Each and every one of you has become a dear friend, and I am happy that you’ve selected me to become a friend of yours as well.  I have often cried, laughed, and smiled at memories resurrected through the sharing of your stories, and I hope you all continue to share your fascinating lives, adventures and advice with me and other readers for years to come.  And for all of you who read my blog and don’t comment, thank you too, for silently offering your support and friendship.  It is greatly appreciated.

I wish I could celebrate this first birthday of my blog with a huge feast, and all of you in attendance.  We’d make merry far into the night, ensconced in lovely gilded chairs, dining by candlelight.  Wouldn’t that be fun?  But since passing together such an evening is physically impossible, I’m settling with not one, but two  giveaways, to show my appreciation to you, my fabulous friends.  Thanks for the memories!

Unfortunately, the only way this works is if you leave a comment.  So stop on by and don’t be shy.  I’d love to get to know all of you.  Comment on any post until Monday the 9th of November to be entered into the drawing.

    By the way…in regard to your Paris comment, I bet you would be so much fun to do a trip like that with! Maybe one day we can do something were we can all (who want to go) pitch in to rent a villa or something (a house if a villa is too much) and meet there. It could be Provence or tuscany?
