Our First Birthday Cake
On July 15, 2011 I moved my 4 y.o. photography blog to a new publishing platform (WordPress), starting new era of Memographer.com. Today, one year later, I would like to share with you Our First Birthday Cake.
Firstly, thanks to all of you who visited Memographer.com this year. I really appreciate your input to my blog. Without your comments, messages and emails my life here would be so boring :)
