Four Years and Counting!
Walking the beach on a windy day by The Red Sea, while living overseas .
Wow! Time flies!!!! Facebook recently informed me, via their
“You have memories on this day” feature,
that I have been blogging for four years! Yep, FOUR YEARS!!!
My blogging adventure began in 2013, as I prepared to move overseas with my hubby. (The move was originally scheduled for a few months, but morphed into two and a half years abroad!) I had determined that to occupy my spare time overseas, and to share my travels and experiences, I would begin a blog. My initial blog post is shown in its entirety, below.
I’m Annette‘s Debut Post
This is my first official post for my blog “I’m Annette!” My goal is to post every week
(or occasionally more, or less),and share recipes, my travels, classic movie and tv information, and anything else that comes to mind. :o) Thanks for joining in!
My first blog post, in 2013, was brief, and to the point. :o)
Looking Back with a Smile
I happily stand in front of the Disneyland Paris ride, It’s a Small World, in 2013.
To commemorate my four years of blogging, I borrow from the world of the classic TV sitcom, using their, “clip show” technique. That is, using previously seen snippets from earlier shows, to make up an entirely new episode. In that same fashion, I will be using a few of my earlier posted photos to reminisce, with a smile, about this past four years of
I’m Annette. :o) Feel free to click on any of the post titles (shown above each photo) to revisit that particular blog post, or go to imannette.net to view them all. In addition to the photos and travel bits, you will find recipes, craft/art ideas, movie suggestions, and free printables)!

I feel blessed to have traveled to such wonderful locales, including amazing Dubai. On one occasion the Burj al Arab sat just outside my hotel window!

Annette’s Big Family Vacation Scrapbook: from the Happiest Place in the World, Walt Disney World!

Our 2014 trip to Walt Disney World was made extra special by the
engagement of my son to his future bride.
They are expecting the arrival of their baby daughter on this Easter! :o)

I attempt to post (around) every other Thursday, but lately life has been crazy busy! Things do not show any signs of slowing down in the next few weeks, and include the addition of a new grand baby! :o). Look for my next post on Thursday, May 11.
