Weekend Hugs!

I don't usually post only images. But I couldn't resist this one!

So sending all my wonderful blog friends warm, weekend hugs from Spain. You ALL mean so much to me as I approach 1 year of blogging; I can't even begin to tell you how much joy your blogs,comments and friendship have brought me.

Hugs to you all!

(A Giveaway to celebrate our 1st birthday will be announced shortly).

  3. Hi Vanessa,
    thanks so much for visiting Hampton Hostess! I just love your blog-pithy, witty and very clever! Wished we had "met" just a week earlier-after Como we spent a week in Spain: Madrid, Toledo, Seville, Marbella and Barcelona--so fantastic! Seville was a favorite of mine--so romantic (even with two kids in tow!) great food (I'm now obsessed with Eslava) and oh so chic. I'm sure you could have given me lots of great things to see and do--next time!!! Looking forward to following you--xx barbara

  4. @Barbara- OMG!! I can't believe you were in Seville. I would have loved to have shown you around. I was in Eslava only 2 weeks ago (perhaps we even passed each other). Fingers crossed there will definitely be a next time xx

  5. ...and I like you and this place very much too girl!
    happy anniversary! :)

  6. Hey Vanessa,

    Thanks for stopping by my way and your lovely comment/recommendations! Much appreciated!
    I hope you're loving life in Spain - you've got some damn good red wines out there and some kick-ass food!

    When I read that you're an ex-criminal psychologist I envisioned something very CSI/NCIS! I was so close to going down that route had fashion not interrupted my choice in degrees!

    p.s congrats on your blogaversary!
