Love Thursday: To the Bestest Readers!

It’s been a while since I’ve stopped and really thanked all of you for continuing to come and visit me here at the blog, on Twitter @michellefabio, and/or on the blog’s Facebook fan page (seven away from 700 as I type this!).

One of the best things about you, dear readers, is that you talk back. You communicate, you leave comments, you take part in discussions, you share thoughts and experiences, and you even send photos!

Indeed, recently I got some hearts from readers for Love Thursday:

  1. MOMA cappuccino from A Friend in California (who has contributed before)
  2. Valentine’s Day Egg by Sarah Dallas (sent by Judy of CoffeeJitters–and yes, this really happened on V Day!)
  3. Potato Chip Love by Angela in Hollywood, FL
  4. Winter Heart from the Amalfi Coast by Laura at Ciao Amalfi!

Thank you, photographers, and

thanks also to everyone else who chips (hah!) in to make BE a lively, fun place!

Happy Love Thursday everyone!

P.S. Mosaic was made at BigHugeLabs.

    Sometimes you need some extra love and hearts. I love that bloggy friends get that. πŸ™‚

  19. My one bean of wisdom. I’m thinking this post gets five out of five expresso cups, with heart shaped froth. And chocolate powder on top. With a saucer and little silver spoon too. Thank you Michelle.

    I enjoyed it.
