blog years

I never imagined that these blog years would be so amazing. 
 Are blog years like dog years?  Do we add some sort of number times the number of posts.  
Well, this is year 5 for me and somehow I let it slip by without any pomp and circumstance or celebratory event.  Four fantastic years of blogging, meeting other kindred souls all the while juggling a family, a renovation and my artwork.  
Thank-you for your support, your inspiring comments and your positivity!

Now pull up to the blog bar, be amazing and order yourself something wet, wonderful and extraordinary.
What will you have? 

Cheers, now go on, be amazing and leave me a comment.
Any requests?

I'm always in awe of you amazing bloggers that have been doing this for so many years. Mind you it's isn't suprising with your beautiful drawings, and beautiful writing! Congratulations on the anniversary :)

Champagne please!
Patricia: I am so glad I came across your blog several years ago. You have shown me what strength looks like, and put me on a path to an artful life. I may have had the ingredients, however, you led the way.
I love that sign - "Be Amazing" Everyone should think about that at least once a day. It is a smile maker.
Congratulation on your blog anniversary!

I think we all need a round of Champagne to toast your five inspiring years, Patricia. You and your blog have made a difference in my life, whether it's a little shift in perspective or a bit of daily encouragement, or a reminder to live in artful way -- to take risks and not give up on dreams. Thanks for five years of amazing posts!
Congrats and cheers to you!!! XO

You are amazing! I don't know how you manage to write daily, visit facebook and pinterest. Do you tweet too? All of this while creating your beautiful art and tending to your family. With adding more hours to my work schedule, I feel I'm losing hours in other places. xo

Congratulations! Four years is amazing, especially
for a 'daily' blogger. The only thing more amazing
is that you did it while also juggling a family, a renovation (OMG) and your artwork. I'm in awe.
