Five Year Anniversary - Paris and Beyond!



Quatorze juillet


This was my first post five years ago when I started my Paris and Beyond photo blog under the guidance of Virginia Jones. In the five years of posting daily, I have met many wonderful people from around the world.  Many of those I have met in person and have traveled to faraway places to see them.  In the beginning I was not sure that I could keep up a daily post with a very full-time job and business travel.


Thank you to all who have followed me and have reached out to me.
Tomorrow I start year six....



(Merci beaucoup, Virginie!)

A big thank you to you Genie for sharing your daily photographs. As you know your photographs and Virginia's provided Mrs J and I with much inspiration for our very own trip to Paris. I look forward to your future posts to relive our trip and perhaps provide an incentive for another trip to the city of lights.

Hey! Congratulations, Genie! I started only one week before you. Visiting Paris through your work has been great fun. I look forward to seeing what you have in store for us in year 6.

Congratulations, Genie! Someone should pin a medal on YOU! It's one thing to do a blog five years or more with regular but periodic posts. To do one each day? Yikes! I applaud you!

Indigo said...

Congratulations! How I admire your discipline and passion! As I do your photos, each day they offer a small wee transformative moment to savor. Merci!
