Sunday night the husband and I had a little celebration dinner for ThankFifi’s 1st birthday.  We headed to one of our favourite dinner spots in the West End, Cafe Andaluz.  The tapas are so good we ate them all before we remembered to get a photo!

The bigger celebration is yet to come though…

It’s been a very busy year with a new job and the blog beginning almost simultaneously but I love it.  The husband has (fortunately) found a love for photography.  My passion for fashion and writing has been indulged by you and seeing my readership grow (a record number this last month!) and reading your lovely comments is such a huge reward.  Thank you.

    CONGRATULATIONS WENDY! 🙂 wow…just 1 year of blogging? I am so impressed with your layout and your “voice” if that makes sense… You are so consistent and a fantastic writer. I know I have told you before, but I really do enjoy reading your blog and seeing your outfits. I also love the fact that I can be a fly on the wall and get a nose into your life too. Blogs that are more personal really resonate with me and keep me coming back. 🙂 Anyway, hope you had a great night!!! 🙂

      It was a birthday gift from the lovely husband actually (although he may have had some guidance from one of my Pinterest boards cunningly named ‘Pssst buy me…’)
