1, 2, 3


So! Today this blog turns 3 years old!!

A lot has happened in those three years (marriage, elinor and what not) -what i find the most remarkable is that I have gone from taking almost no photos at all with a very crummy camera three years ago to having high resolution documentation of every moment of my life! what a gift! I now have over 23.000 photos saved on flickr!

And you guys! over 400.000 visits from 133 countries this year alone! Don't even know how many comments! Its fantastic!

So thank you! For being such an inspiring community! And if you leave a comment here before next monday (the 17th of january in the evening) you might just be the winner of a little thank-you-gift :)

Hooray!

Bravo pour ton blog, et elinor est trop chou!

Kathi said...

Happy Birthday!
I wouldn't mind you posting even more of those 23.000 photos, photos of your colorful home always make me happy!
Seems like a blog makes sense to motivate for taking pictures,I really often regret not to have pictures of such everyday events to which you usually don`t have a camera with you, like nice walks or when you`re meeting your friends for coffee.
