My First Blogiversary!

IMG_0896[3]

With great JOY, today I’m celebrating the very 1st Blogiversary of Life Bellissima!

Wow! Has it really been one whole year? Although in some ways, it feels longer because of all the wonderful experiences I’ve had while blogging!

The very first on my list is all of you!

All the wonderful friends that I have met, laughed with, shared recipes and special memories with and come to love as treasured friends!

Whether baking in my kitchen, hiking up a mountain to look for the perfect Christmas tree, picking cherries on a warm, spring day, experiencing life in the country, recalling amusing stories about our chickens, bunnies, tabby cat, Marcie, or our family, I feel like you’ve been right along with us on our journey, and it’s been a beautiful, wonderful and inspiring first year!

I look forward to many more beautiful blogging years to come — thank you for your friendship, encouragement and kindness!

Now if only we could celebrate together with a big blogiversary cake! 😉
