Happy 1st Blogoversary to Peaches & Paprika


APRIL (EASTER)  2015
TULIP JAIL (MAY 2015)



Blogoversary week retrospective! 



This is a very special week for us because we made it to our very first blogoversary!  It has been an incredible year making new friends and we express our gratitude to everyone for the warm warm welcome you gave us.  

Thanks to Zoolatry's Ann A. for our beautiful Blogoversary BADGE! 

 We also want to thank Janet B. of The Cat On My Head for hosting our very first blog hop, Athena and Marie of Caturday Art, our very second blog hop and Mo of Cat Blogosphere  for being our Steady Eddy hop every day!  Not to forget Jan of Jan's Funny Farm for interviewing us on Mousebreath! Also Jan & Luke  from Wag N' Woof for being our co-host on Box Day in June (and Zoolatry again for her wonderful box day designs), Ellen Pilch of 15 and Meowing for being the very first blogger we ever met.  


NEW WORDS & PHRASES WE LEARNED

We learned wonderful new phrases like Oh Mi Cod and MOLCaturday Art, Catubuloussisfurs and brofurs and the wonderful blog hops. Please forgive us if you helped us and we didn't mention you because everyone helped by being present!  It is so solitary sometimes being a Kitty Mom... but no more!


MAY 2015 (LONGING FOR MEMPHIS)
So although we couldn't thank everyone we sure think you all are great and look forward to another fun year.

We thought it would be fun to post 12 pictures representing our first year, for those who feel like a nostalgia trip!

We have been so happy to know you this year, Jan!s Thank you also for the Mouthbreath interview, though we're not good at catching mice like we're supposed to be. We let our human catch them instead, it's easier. By the way we fixed up that paragraph and put a link to you...properly we hope!

Peaches and Paprika said...

Many thanks to you, Caren!

Peaches and Paprika said...

Thank U, both. Don't forget, Sammy, we are still looking for a handsome boyfriend like U this spring! LOL. Best regards to Mom Pam & look forward to getting to know you guys better this year. We really appreciate your nice comments about our photos. It's a real joy to put them together (though time consuming!)

Peaches and Paprika said...

Merci Beaucoup, les Swiss Cats! We love your elegant blog and it's been our pleasure to meet you this year! Look forward to more encounters.

Peaches and Paprika said...

Thank you so much for your wishes and taking the time to visit! We agree, it's been paw some and also catabulous!

I can't believe it has been a whole year. Now if only I could combine blogging with the rest of my life...! Carol, Peaches & Paprika

Peaches and Paprika said...

Thanks Melissa, Mudpie & Angel Truffles. It has been a particular delight to meet you and get to know you. Regards to Angel Truffles in her Rainbow-place, and Mudpie, you are getting to be quite a charming young lady!

Peaches and Paprika said...

Peaches and Paprika said...

Thank You, we love your creative blog. So sorry about Angel Ladybird last year (so adorable! )-- glad we could include her in our Rainbow slideshow!

Peaches and Paprika said...

Thank you Katie Kat! We look forward to our 2nd year (if we could oooonly find more time to blog and visit!) We appreciate your compliment about the graphics.

Peaches and Paprika said...

Aw that's okay..we know YOU know how special we think you are!!! It has been a challenge trying to balance blogging with the rest of our life or vice versa as there is still a FT job to go to! We feel like we're not getting around near enough but we try! Thank you for being YOU and we look forward to knowing you for a long time!
