BLACK AND WHITE WEDNESDAY #45 - 7 YEARS ALREADY...

Lakeside 6 7 bis

The last picture was submitted to "Black & White Wednesday", an event created by Susan at " The Well-Seasoned Cook". It will be hosted on the 15th of August by Claire at "Chez Cayenne" (click here in order to see who is hosting the next roundup).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today, my blog is celebrating its 7th year of existence! Time sure passes extremely fast and it feels like I just started blogging yesterday when in fact, I nervously pressed the submit button for the very first time 2555 days ago...

On this very special occasion, I wish to thank all of you occasional as well as faithful readers and friends for following and encouraging me. Your kind words as well as heartwarming compliments are always welcome as they enlighten my life, reassure me and give me the energy to stay the course and continue sharing with you my passion for the culinary world, the art of photography and wordcraft.


When I lose all confidence and I am ready to give up, you never fail to give me a reason to hold on and surpass myself. Just like a good chief conductor, you know how to guide me and keep me on track. My blog's symphony is ochestrated by the cheerful tip-tapping of your fingers on the keyboard and the gentle click of your mouse!

  32. Très bon anniversaire de blog chère Rosa, on ne se connait pas depuis lontemps mais je prend à chaque fois grand plaisir à découvrir tes beaux articles gourmands et tes magnifiques photos. Je ne suis pas très présente durant ces mois d'été car très occupée mais saches que je te souhaite encore de longues années de succès car c'est tout à fait mérité. Merci également pour ta gentillesse et tes visites car malgré ton succès tu as su rester une personne humble et c'est une qualité que j'apprécie beaucoup car elle se fait rare chez certaines personnes qui connaissent le succès et c'est bien dommage. Bonne fin de semaine et gros bisous, bravo encore pour tes superbes photos !!
