I started my blog in April 2008. In those early days I was learning how to use our computer, use my little point and shoot camera and then combine those two items to create a post every now and then. It was a struggle. . .I would spend hours just trying to complete what now seems like a simple task (as long a Typepad is working!! :)
It was during those first few weeks of entering the "World of Blog" that I discovered Beverly's blog HOW SWEET THE SOUND. She started her weekly PINK SATURDAY event in May of that year and I joined the party with my first post on June 27, 2008.
Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that I would be able to attend her party every single Saturday since that first time. . .but I have!! Pink was never a favorite color in my life prior to joining the Pink Saturday Crew, but since then, I've found that PINK is a huge part of my life. I look for it everywhere. . .and have been amazed that it IS everywhere.
Besides our family pets, Pink Saturday topics have included my friends and family, special occasions in my life, antiquing outings, my running journey, pink cupcakes, just to name a few. . .I guess basically I can PINK UP most things! :)
There have been a few posts that stick in my mind, but the one I cherish the most is that very first one. I can clearly recall how I enlisted the help of my husband and daughter so we could get pictures of our dog and two cats sporting their pink bows. The furbabies weren't too keen on the experience, especially my black kitty Frankie. :)
PINK SATURDAY has become such an important part of my life. . .and I owe it all to Beverly. Without her persistence at making it an important part of her life, too, our weekly gathering would not have happened or have continued to happen every single week over the last six years!! Now that is quite an accomplishment!!
THANK YOU, BEVERLY, for all you do to for us!!
NOW, blow out the candle, eat the ice cream cone and enjoy your 6th PINK SATURDAY BIRTHDAY!!
If you visit Beverly's blog, HOW SWEET THE SOUND, you will find a huge party of other bloggers just waiting to share their birthday posts with you, too!!
Happy Pink Saturday!!!
