So this was my debut post here at WP, 8 years ago, October 19, 2011!
…and it sure has been a fortunate virtual journey all these years, for which I am grateful to each and every friend I’ve made here.
May you all enjoy good fortune wherever life takes you!

I think I missed your first debut post, Marina….I will have to dredge my archives to see when we first spoke on here! Thank you for sharing your life!
Ah, like most (I think) it was a lonely beginning, so I doubt we would have met on that day… But …way back we go, surely! I’ll check too, to see! 😉
Amazing! What a trip this is. I guess I met you about 5 – 6 years ago!
Oh but it feels like I’ve known you forever!!!! ❤❤❤❤❤❤😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😍😘😘😘😘😘😘😘❤❤❤❤❤❤🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾
Wow! I’ve known you all that time – I think we started blogging around the same time and I have always been grateful for your kindness and support my friend 😊 xx
So am I, my friend… very grateful and happy. How time flies though! I can’t believe 8 years have passed… Yes, we did start at about same time, isn’t it great?! 😉😊😀
…by the way, wishing you the best outcome today. 👍
I am delighted that we have shared the blogging journey for the past 8 years. We have been on a grand adventure. And more to come. Looking forward to your 2020 calendar!
So am I, my dear Rebecca… what a journey! I’m so happy to have found you! Here’s to journeys to come! xoxoxo
Happy anniversary, dearest Marina!
Thank you, my dear friend! 🙂 🙂
Eight years ago… I remember it well. It was a very dark time. The world seemed bleak, hopeless. I was lying in the gutter, wondering if I should get up and put another coin in the parking meter, when a complete stranger came up to me– well, down to me, actually– and shoved an iPad in my hands and cried: “Check this out, you poor wino!!”
It was… Art Towards A Happy Day. A yellow half-and-half tree. It filled me with hope, and the most inexplicable happiness. It changed my life… I’m still lying in the gutter, but now there’s a big smile on my face. 🍨😋
No no noooooooooo, you have your own throne up at Mt. Olympus, with full extra and limitless ambrosia…. remember?!!!!!!!!!! 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🍧🍨🍧🍨🍧🍨🍧🍨🍧🍨🍧🍨🍧🍨🍧🍨🍧🍨🍧🍨🍧🍨🍧🍨🍧🍨🍧

8 Years for my Poetry on a Canapé blog,as well. Seems like 2011 was a year to share our ideas. Good on you, Marina, for your beautiful creations…!
I think you may be right [on 2011] 😉 Happy 8 to you too, my dear Jean-Jacques! Happy to have found you! 🙂
I agree wholeheartedly!!!
