Beautiful Blogging Party

Welcome to My Petite Maison
and what I love about blogging party!

Step onto the porch
I've been waiting for you!

Have a seat, you may be here for awhile...
What do I love about blogging?

The beauty of it...
sometimes it's learning a blogging friend
lives practically in my own backyard!

Or the sweetness
of making friends that live
on the other side of the Earth.

Friends we plan to visit, who would've guessed?

I know, you would have, right?
Because you plan to as well.


Meeting with a blogging friend or customer
of my store that is now a dear, dear friend
finding we have so many things in common!
Learning new things:
Recipes, languages, customs, family histories,
or just small every day tips to make life easier.

And most of all~
From my wonderful experiences...
Sharing with no strings attached!

It's all an open book and out there
for the taking. The people I've met
are so sweet and sincere.

Thank you, Merci, Gracias, Grazie, Dank u!

sweet blogger and friend, Marie Antoinette


Thank you for joining me
Happy May Day
and
Have a wonderful weekend!

Lovely post and blog. I am glad you love blogging because I love reading your posts!

Siobhan said...

What a beautiful blog party this is and Mr Zeke is so cute!!!

Email me when you get a chance xo

Jacque said...

I love blogging because it gives me the avenue to express and thru that expression I get to vent all the stresses of the day, of which I have many! It is a "give and take" relationship with strangers who enjoy doing some of the same things as me--kindred spirits of sort. It is a learning experience about other people, other places, and other styles which interests me alot. Isn't it strange how we are all different and yet we are all alike? I love reading your blog, it aspires me to look at things in a "different light". Thanks for allowing me to share my thoughts with you.

Andrea said...

To sip and drink a latte on your porch...Oh, how divine. Zeke is too much...he is absolutely adorable!

Brenda said...

Oh, I didn't know about this! Too late now. Oh well. I'll go over and read the others. Yes, blogging has brought me some very fine friends. Like you, Tracie!
