I began blogging about two years ago when we lived in Morocco
and I wanted to keep my family posted on what we were up to.
My first blog didn't even have pictures. Then I got a digital camera
and met Maryam whose My Marrakech
remains a joy and delight.
It was Maryam who introduced me to wonderful bloggers like
Constance of Rochambeau and
Stephanie of Rodrigvitzstyle
In New York last summer we had a lovely real world lunch party for
Constance's birthday--which is today!
I became friends in real life with a group of very talented people.
The photograph above was taken by Susanna Gordon
one of the most gifted photographers I've ever met.
It is part of a photo shoot Susanna did with her niece A.
and will almost certainly be the cover of Jane and the Essex Serpent
a book for children that I'm currently editing.
Child, water, woods. Magic.
Blogging has enriched my life in so many ways.
I recommend it highly.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CONSTANCE
