Today, I am excited to celebrate the 7th anniversary of BELGIAN PEARLS !
I can’t believe it’s been seven years already. Time flies!
I remember publishing my first blogpost on July 31, 2009 ! I absolutely wasn’t sure that anyone would be interested in what I shared that day. How surprised I was, that soon after that first post, I received so many kind and encouraging comments and emails from you ! People from all over the world expressed how pleased they were to have discovered my blog and how much they were inspired by my posts. So very touching ! Since then up to now, I am thankful to all of you for your enthusiasm, your support and encouragement !
Reflecting on these past seven years, I am so very grateful for the friendship I received through blogging. I have met so many wonderful people, and have discovered so may beautiful blogs from all around the world. Just amazing ! I couldn’t have hoped for more and I do feel honored to have so many friends and readers. Thousands of people are joining me along my journey, following BELGIAN PEARLS via WordPress, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest.
I wished I could toast with everyone of you on these 7 years of BELGIAN PEARLS !
