Valentine Wishes to You!

I am sending warm Valentine's wishes to all my followers, readers and  fellow bloggers.

I so clearly remember writing that first (awful) post about a year ago and nervously pressing the PUBLISH button and wondering if anyone in the world will read it.

Well, one person did and left a comment. I might have given up there and then if it wasn't for that one.

And then writing the second one and of joy... getting 3 comments. I felt I'd really arrived! 

I blog because it is a hobby that I thoroughly enjoy and it allows me to share my passion with like-minded people. It makes it so much more rewarding when you hear from the people who share that passion, so a huge thank-you to all of those who leave comments on my blog or email me. I really love hearing from you!

Another very big thank-you is to those bloggers who have added my blog to their blog lists on their side bars. I get a lot of traffic through some of you and am very grateful.

I also clearly remember the day, when I discovered the Stats section on my Dashboard and found that people all over the world were reading my blog. What a thrill that gave me then and still gives me. It really does make the world feel like a village.

So to all my readers in the UK and Europe, this heart is for you.

This heart goes to all my North American readers -  It's a big heart because there are a lot of you!

To all my readers from Australia and New Zealand, this pretty heart is for you.

This lovely heart goes to my readers in Asia.

And this one to my readers in South America.

And this colourful heart goes to my readers in Africa, South Africa in particular, because we are, after all, the Rainbow Nation!

And finally, this heart goes to my husband and sons for putting up with my hobby that can, at times, be all consuming!!

Much love to all of you

Till next time

  2. These are the prettiest hearts I have seen. Usually it is just the red and pink traditional ones. These are pure eye candy. I don't even do any Valentine decorating, but I would surely hang one of these wreaths. Congrats on your blogiversary.

    We love your blog that's why we keep coming back here.
    And reading comments from you is always wonderful.

    FYI: I can't comment on your blog using Firefox I wonder why,
    I had to open it using Google Chrome.

  26. Well you are certainly getting lots of comments now. You must be ecstatic to get so many. I know I would be. Our minds must think alike as I did a post on hearts too. Fiona

  27. Beautiful post, beautiful blog, and beautiful photos. I'll surely keep coming back! Love heart designs and i like those photos. My best Valentines day wishes to you as well.

    Cheers and hugs xxx
