6 years of sheer joy (~‾⌣‾)~

NBC is 6 today!  
It’s been a wonderful 6-year journey of sheer joy.  
An enriching  and uplifting experience
of sharing and connecting with
other fellow bloggers and readers
from around the globe.  
To me, blogging is an instant getaway
from the humdrum of everyday life,
a safe haven in times of chaos.
And a place I fondly call
“My safe, happy space”
Many thanks for sharing this joy with me!

The Cake of Friendship – Michelle Flores

Preheat the oven of love

With plenty of secrets and hugs

Mix in giggles and laughs

cute puppy giggling
That make your sides split in half

Bake with the love and care

And all the things you both should share

Decorate with the frosting of trust

This is really a must

Enjoy the cake do not eat it fast

Just like your new friendship make it last.

–  Michelle Flores

Valentine Zoo – Karl Fuchs

I’m an animal lover, I’m happy to say.

And I love them and pet them most every day.

So for you, Valentine, I thank heaven above,

Because you’re like the creatures I love,
You’re cuddly and cute as a warm, playful kitten.

With your animal nature, my love, I am smitten.

You walk like a lioness stalking the plain,

With your dangerous eyes and your beautiful mane.

It’s such a pleasure to pet you, as you sigh and you purr,
I run my hand over you, like stroking your fur.

I’m a strong Alpha wolf, with you at my side,
Sharing love, food and shelter, and feelings of pride.

These feelings of animal love we can share,

As I find different ways to show that I care.

So won’t you please be my own private zoo?
My Valentine, I love to play with you.
