Six Year Blog Anniversary

 

Today is the six year blog anniversary of Belgian Pearls.

I still can’t believe that I am blogging all these years. I am very grateful for all the things I have experienced since I started my blog in 2009. I met with many wonderful people from around the world, some of whom I became good friends with.

A sincere thank you for the support and encouragement from all of you, my dear readers !

If you weren't there, Belgian Pearls would have no meaning at all.

As I mentioned in my earlier blogpost, I do try to slow down a bit these days, enjoying to be outside in the garden and trying to accompany my horse Mango as much as I can.

To end this post, I would love to share with you a gorgeous and moving tribute to the African lion Cecil who was killed by a hunter last week. The beautiful tribute is written by Rosemary Wright from Toronto, author of the blog ‘A Beating Heart’.

Talk to you soon !
