Happy Birthday Milkmoon.

Nectarines at the end of summer that wasn't. Where is the autumn?
Today we are three!

Above is my first ever blogpost on this place that has become such a part of our lives here in the Milkmoon household. Never would I have guessed where it would have taken me, or the people I would have met.


You dear readers!

And I am delighted to be sharing this happy day with a very dear blogger friend, Gigi of The Magpies Fancy, who has asked me to take part in a wonderful series of guest posts entitled 'Legacy', and my day is today, by coincidence! So at some stage today, if you tootle on over to her most gorgeous and inspiring blog you can read my musings on the subject, and while you are there do take a wander back through her posts, and I think you will agree it is a warm, inviting place to visit, like a sunny windowsill lined with books and gorgeous photos and filled with the best sort of conversation.

So, as it is a birthday here, there simply has to be a give-away! Just leave a comment here and at the end of the week, Sunday to be exact, I will draw a name out of a hat. I have been compiling a couple of folders of photos I plan to print very soon, both from Milkmoon, and from A Year At My Back Door, and the winner is welcome to choose one, any one, they like.

So a sunny, Happy Wednesday to you all, and today's music is...here.

Happy blogday to you! My 5th blogiversary has come and gone. How did I ever live without my little corner of the world where I can escape at the end of the day? I have had so much going on I haven't stopped by in a while, but as always I find your prose insightful, your photos breathtaking. I think all of us readers feel our world has been brightened by you being in it and sharing it with us, too.

Happy Birthday! I love coming here and getting a glimpse into another world, so different from mine here in Oklahoma! I never thought a blog could make me feel like I have traveled miles without leaving my apartment.

Happy third, Milkmoon! I just celebrated the first anniversary of my blog too, and I've followed your lovely blog for almost that entire year.
Glad to hear your man is back safe and sound, and I love the photo of his studio when he was away.
Sending all good things your way!
