Happy 2nd Blog Birthday!!!

Wow! Time flies and it is again time to celebrate the 2nd birthday of this blog (belated)!!! 

To align to the blogging tradition, here is a reflection of my second year as a blogger (the past year in review if you will):

Blog Birthday: August 7th 2009
Number of posts: 298 (this is 299)
The first post:
The most fun post to write (for some strange reason, I like to share embarrassing stories about myself):
The post I'm probably the most proud of: 
Since the last blog birthday, I have...
....tried downhill skiing for the first time ever!!
....managed to finally get my PADI Open Water Diver Certificate
My little niece, Cindy
....celebrated the 1st B-day of my little niece and God daughter and she has started to walk!!!
....bought myself a Mountain bike! A great investment... Thanks Chris for insisting =))
....climbed a tree for the first time in years (and it's still soooo childishly fun!!!)
....found myself a new and exciting job (still in Switzerland, but in the French speaking part, meaning that I will continue to feel pretty lost from time to time ;))
....found a new, great friend!! Nicole, I am so happy to be able to call you my friend!!!
....travelled to Sweden a few times, the Dominican Republic, Rome (twice!!), Poland (Warszaw and Katowice), Paris, Germany (diffrent locations) and last but not least - many places here in Switzerland...
....improved my photography skills and hope to further do so as I just invested in underwater housing for my Canon G10.
....baked a lot of Cupcakes (not to mention the eating of them)!
....spent countless of hours in the gym.
...learned a little bit of German (finally ;))
...."met" some really nice, new (to me) bloggers (they are on my list of blogs that I'm stalking ;)).
....had some of my very best friends come here to visit us.
....very spontaneously booked a trip to Italy this weekend that we will spend diving, enjoying fine Italian cuisine and watching at least a couple of sunsets.

The Facebook fan page for this blog has grown from last years 155 to this years 223 followers!! THANK YOU!!

....and last but certainly not least, I am still very much in love 

In other words, it has been another amazing year!
The last year in retrospect......

I love to interact with you and you are the reason and motivation that keeps this blog going. I hope that you will continue to stop by. As long as you do, I will continue to blog ;))
