one year...



Today is this blog´s one year anniversary. I can´t believe how fast it has gone by. I started this blog so my family and friends back "home" could see a little of what my life was like here in Spain. I wasn´t expecting to meet so many wonderful people. These cakes are for you. Thank you for sticking with me, laughing at my jokes, being funny, and mostly your kindness. It´s not always easy living here. And on those days, your comments lighten my heart. And I thank you for that.

¡Dos besos muy gordos!

Happy day. I am glad you started your blog. I did mine for the same reason, and also feel that living where I am, far from friends and family, can be hard. Being part of your world has widened mine. Thank you.

I really enjoy your blog too. It's always interesting and the topics and photos bring back fond memories of the time, long ago, that my wife and I spent in the Basque country (Donostia-San Sebastián).

Allegria said...

Aw, Jane! The treats are delicious--thanks! Happy Birthday! Your blog was one of the first I found. It was serendipity! Being involved in your CV helped me become a little more immersed in the bloggy world, and catching a glimpse of your world adds a bit more colour to my own. Thanks!

Happy birthday to your blog! Am glad to have found it. Wish I had earlier. Funny I started my blog the same way, just before moving from England to Malta as a way to stay in touch with friends and family and to share what life was like in Malta. Like you I had no idea it would result in so much more!

KathyA said...

Can't believe you've been doing this for only a year!!! You're so accomplished at it.
How are you? Is it really cold in Spain? We had about 5-6" of snow on Saturday and are expecting more tonight. It's been cold -- so much for predictions for a mild winter.

Elisabelle said...

Happy birthday to your blog!
And thanks for sharing!

Manya said...

Felicitaciones!

caramelcaramelo said...

oh! congratulations! this is wonderful and well you have made many friends and that is the best. Well that is what I think anyway of my relatively new experience in the blogosphere. You say "besos gordos", but I will just send you "besototes" (the Mexican way) --it's all the same. Felicidades! Que alegría! Kenza.

kristina - no penny for them said...

dear jane,

isn't it funny how we always think others have been blogging so much longer and are so established in the blogosphere and then *surprise* that's not quite so?

i have admired your blog from the beginning. you have such a unique voice and such an unmistakable vision in your photography. i'm glad i found your place!

Happy blog birthday, Jane! Your cakes look so yummi.

PS: Answer to your question: I (and my husband) will be in Vienna for at least one year, maybe two. But we still have our apartment in Málaga and will go there once in a while ... after Vienna we will return to live in Spain even though it is not always that easy living there, as you write.
