Happy ninth birthday, dear blog!

milkchocolatemoussecake

Nine years! That's a pretty long time, for a blog! And as I always say in my birthday posts - time sure flies It doesn't feel like it's been that long. I know the blog hasn't been as ambitious this past year, and I sort of regret having put my Swedish version of the blog to rest for now, but I'm also pretty proud that I still post regularly and I'm so happy that I have the time and energy to do that. I really love blogging - and especially the interaction with all the wonderful people out there, who read and sometimes comment or e-mail. I love you guys!

The cake - clearly not homemade, but bought in our local supermarket this morning. Reasonable ambitions, right? Anyway. It's a milk chocolate mousse and it's really very tasty. My dear husband happens to be away on a short business trip, but I look forward to a cake-party with the kids later on today.

Other cakes I've actually made, in my more ambitious days, for the blog's birthday:  Princess Cake, Black Forest Cake (Swedish style), Budapest Roll, Oscar II:s cake , vanilla bean jelly roll and last year a candy-decorated hazelnut-banana meringue cake.

Congratulation Anne with your nine years of blogging :-) I enjoy reading your blog and sometimes I try out some of your recipes in my little kitchen.

NINE YEARS! Wow, that is amazing, prove of huge blogging stamina!

I love blogging too, and find that my site ends up almost like a diary of sorts as it documents travels, some life experiences and all.

I hope I get to nine years, I am half way there, just a young baby compared to you...

Congratulations, and here's to the tenth year ahead!

Grattis till dig Anne! I've been reading your blog since just about the very beginning. In fact, I modeled my own blog after yours because I was so inspired by your style and voice.

All these years of reading about you, Per, the boys, and cats, I feel like we are friends and neighbors. Thank you for coming into our lives every day. Each post from you makes my day a little brighter.
