l'anniversaire d'ADP


It's been a year since it all started with this.  When I began ADP, I wasn't sure at all that I had, or could take, enough decent photos to do a daily blog.  But I committed to myself that I would try it a year and see how it went.  Well, you've seen the good, the bad, and the ugly, but at least I did manage to find something every day.  So there's hope that will continue to be the case.  Anyway, thanks to everyone for looking and special thanks to all those who have commented... it means a lot to me.

For the newcomers (and that would be most of you), here is how I began the blog: a calendar series of Amboise month by month.

  8. Oh gosh, I wanted to comment on that December snow pic but can't :-( I was going to say how absolutely fantastic!

    Had I checked Blogger earlier, I'd have stopped at a pâtisserie to buy myself a tartelette au citron and put a candle on it. Bon anniversaire ADP (non, pas aéroports de Paris) de la part de VDP !

    1. Hmmm. Don't understand your comment about the snow pic. I posted two in January, but not December. Anyway, thanks !

      Merci bien VDP !

    1. One year pales in comparison to your NINTH ANNIVERSARY coming up soon ! Honestly, I don't see how you've been able to do it. As I said on my first post, you're the one that inspired me to do this thing... me and so many others... you should be proud.

  15. I am back home after a 3600km drive and I am catching up here with your ADP.
    When I started reading this post I really felt afraid you woud write that it is enough and you stop..Thanks God, no! It is like a daily RV when I have my breakfast.
