Twelve For Snow

Today let’s celebrate The Snow Melts Somewhere for she has the most to do with the fact that I’m still around and blogging.

Since my favourite and most supportive blogger (and how nice it is when the two are not inter-dependent) celebrated a nice round number recently, I wish to show her my gratitude by presenting twelve photographs from my earlier blogs that she loved, together with twelve of her favourite quotations that I posted there (but not together with these images).

I will never forget the feeling when I observed a stranger coming over to read my words without having to twist her arm. And when I discovered her gentle, benevolent and observant way of doing it, soon she was a stranger no longer.

The first quotation is mine and is connected with the hairdresser from my hair story (to which Snow related here). And the last photo reminds me of one of hers that brought us together way back when and which she included among her favourite photos of all times.

Much love to you, SMSW, and know that we appreciate that you keep nurturing us even with your two new demanding followers. 😉

Disclaimer: I did NOT eat all these pretty bread things for my breakfast that morning. They were just posing! You can have some too.

She makes you look like her because to her that is pretty.

  1. Thank you dear Manja for such a sweet and thoughtful birthday gift!!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️
    I still love all of the quotes and photos – my favorite photos are the last one and the one where the kid has frozen still in front of the dog (is it bestia or a lookalike?)
    I’m so happy we bumped into each other and who knows if I would still be blogging without you! Strangers are just friends who haven’t met, right?
    Let’s continue to be secretly incredible, and supportive of each other too, and let’s have fun while blogging ☺️Cin cin!!

    1. I’m so glad you like it, SMSW! ❤

      That is bestia indeed at his first wedding, that's why amore is so dressed up. At some point I was walking the dog and had a following of Italian kids who all wish to play with him. So they did. 🙂

      This is true and we should never forget it: Strangers are friends! Cin cin and na zdravje!

  3. I’m with Prior – the right word for this post is ‘masterful’. Loved the quotes, loved the photos (especially the kittens … omg!)

    I had to go back and reread every single quote – twice. My favourite is “There is another world, but it is inside this one.” —Paul Éluard
    Wow. That’s all I’ve got. Wow.

  4. What a wonderful thing to read first thing in the morning – you two are both awesome 🙂
    This post reminds me how grateful I am for the opportunity to learn from so many terrific people that I’ve met on here – you very much included, my friend.
    And of course the Mitch Hedberg quote is a classic!
