blog years

"treat and or walk" please master pve
This post marks my one year anniversary.  If I were to calculate it in "blog years" as we do our dogs years, I just wonder how old I might really be.  Only one year, and nearly 400 posts.  I feel like it has been 1,ooo years since I entered this domain and I feel so much wiser.   Each and every one of your comments are like "treats" to me.  

My dog, "Bentley" has been by my side, cheering me on with my work, and daily tasks,  he is always here for me and listens to my every word.  I love when I am in the blog world, he will come over, put his sweet head on my leg, which means, "enough" already.  Well, then we have the "blogging police, my 3 and the warden."  Only some of you will know what I mean.  I do love the comments, "Mom, are you blogging again?" This blogging thing can be a full time career not to mention my real job of artiste, housewife and ceo of my domain.  

How shall I celebrate my blog birthday, candles on a cup-cake, a fresh cup of coffee in really good china, a glass of bubbly or a walk with my faithful and loyal companion.  The good part is that each of you can sing to me and come on the walk with us or even toast to me.  Here's to a great year here.  I hope that when you visit, it is like feeling the love from a pet, unconditional and loyal.  One year deserves a reward, or some sort of treat or comment!  "Atta blogger!" Your comments make my day add up to a beautiful blog year.

Thank-you, I am forever grateful and blessed with each and every one of you.  Such a good and faithful group.

Patricia~ Congratulations. I start each day with you- sometimes before that first cup of coffee.
One of the many things I love about PVE, is your ability to bring your warmth, caring and sensitivity into all of our lives-as in your latest post.
You are blessed and I wish you many, many more years of spreading pure joy!

Wishing you a happy day of painting.

Happy Blog Birthday to you! You should be so proud of yourself for the world you've built here. You've added so much to the blog world. Thanks friend.

Kim said...

You've only been blogging for 1 year?? You seem such a pro at it! I would have thought you have been doing this forever!

Happy 1 year!

pve design said...

Kim,
nope, just feels like 4-ever, sort of like that of being a mom.
Now I can add oh, that was before I blogged.

Kwana-
I have you to blame, don't I?
Thanks for all your support and getting me going.
I remember it well.

Patricia, Happy Anniversary!! I photographed the window boxes at J.McLaughlin on King St in Charleston and thought of you. I told my husband about your unbelievable talent!! Here's to many more years!! Cheers!

Yes, it feels like I've been blogging a 1,000 years as well -I can't imagine my life without it! I LOVE your dog, he's so cute! I can't wait till the day I'm able to have a little friend like that.

Happy anniversary! I can't believe it's only been a year - you've become such a regular part of my mornings. Congratulations!

Karena said...

Congratualtions Patricia! Blogging is something that calls for us to reach out to others. Look what an inspiration you are to so many people around the world!

Joyce said...

A toast to you my friend for a wonderful year of touching many hearts and brightening our days. Your heartfelt words are music to my ears and your art fills my heart with joy. I wish you many more years of great success with your blog. Every path we walk leads us to another.

Kathleen said...

I'm adoring your dog. If you lived in my neighborhood, we'd have to take dog walks together.

simply seleta said...

Wow, 400 posts in a mere 12 months?! No wonder you're comparing it to dog years!

So happy to have met you, dear friend. I love each and every one of your posts. They are moving and always full of beauty.

When I first started out, a new blogging friend told me that blogging is very much like a cyrstal meth addiction. At first I thought that was a harsh comparison, but now I completely understand what she was saying. I'm sure your "warden" would agree. My warden sure does.

Cheers to you and all of the inspiration you give us!

xoxo

Happy Belated Blog Day! You are the creme de la creme.

hello gorgeous said...

Congrats!

I have only been reading blogs since May I think and I remember the first post that drew me (ha ha) to you. It was of a seaplane (for a company logo). I think of it all the time because my husband flies one.

Your blog is just beautiful! And your clients are so lucky to have found you (see last post :-).

Happy New Blog Year.
