1 Year Blog Birthday!


It's been a whole year since I started this blog! 189 posts later ... I can't believe it.
That, as many of you know, is a lot of cropping, uploading, writing and editing!

It's been such an amazing creative outlet and even more unexpected, the connections with people you meet from all over the world and the inspiration I get going on so many wonderful blogs out there! You hear that a lot, and it really is true.

I will get back to posting my Italy trip in my next post (Assisi!) but for now I thought I'd share a little California which has been my home for nearly all of my life!

California Poppies Ojai California Spring 2010










Thank you to anyone who visits or has ever visited, read, commented or just taken a moment to look at this blog! And thanks to my sister Penny who encouraged me to start this and now has a blog of her own!

Hope you are all having a beautiful weekend!
Grazie Mille!

These flowers are incredible. What a fabulous orange/gold colour. I think you found these poppies in fairyland.;D
They are so magical and otherworldly. I love the sunlight shining through the petals. Just beautiful!

Happy Blog Birthday, Lucinda!

All Best Wishes,
Jo.

You are welcome. Your blog has a beautiful, serene energy that makes me want to come back. It's everything -- the photos, the font, the writing and the quotes. They work together to show a side of you that is just lovely, creative, sensitive and caring. I always look forward to visiting here.

Beautiful Sunday to you.

And I did not mention your art, which is in a category of itself, and your story, which captures the essence of what is important in life.
