My First Blog Anniversary

It's the first anniversary of this blog today. I've been blogging on The Good Life blog since April 2009, but as that blog records my gardening trials and tribulations, I thought it would be a good idea to start a new blog to record my day to day family life.

Archie had just joined the family when I started this blog, so I thought it would be a nice idea to show you just how much he has grown and changed in his first year.

 17/08/10 Archie had been with us for five days. What a little scrap he was.

15/10/10 A walk in the park. Archie's five months old but is still so little.

11/02/11 Letting it all hang out. Archie does insist on making himself comfy.

08/04/11 His long fur is starting to grow.

13/05/11 Archie's first birthday. Playing with his birthday toys.

03/08/11 On holiday in Cornwall. He's grown in to such a handsome dog.

I've done a giveaway on The Good Life blog for each anniversary and thought I would do the same on this blog, but what with it being the school holidays and one thing or another, I haven't got around to organising it, so it's on hold for the time being. I will do one at a later date though so do watch out for that.

Before I finish this post, I'd like to thank everyone who pops by to read my ramblings. I really enjoy reading all your comments on my posts and I'm thrilled each time I get a new follower. I've also made some good friends through blogging and enjoy visiting all your blogs too. I hope we can continue to visit each other for a long time to come.

    And what agreat way to celebrate - these wonderful pictures of Archie!

    I just love the one of him lolling on his back on the sofa - made me laugh - just like Logan. They have no problem chilling do they?
    He has such a lovely face, and his colouring is lovely with those beautiful long silky ears.

  12. Thank you for all your lovely comments.

    Flighty - Glad to hear that your Sofa Flying blog will be resuming after the summer break.

    Gill - I can't believe how little Archie was, and it's such a short while ago too. Still, it's hard to remember now.

    Scented Sweetpeas - Time is running away from me, I can't believe how fast time goes by.
