Happy Anniversary to Sampson & Astrid!

One of the very best things about blogging is making friends with people who share the same passions as you do. When I started blogging 4 years ago, I had no idea that such a warm and welcoming community of fellow cat bloggers existed. Today, I’d have to say that some of the people and friends that I’ve made through my blog are some of the best friends that I have.

One of those dear friends is Janet Blue from The Cat on My Head. Janet is such a sweet and kind-hearted person, and she was one of the very first people I “met” online. Since then, we have met in person several times and keep in touch through phone calls and emails in between. She is like another mom to me.

Some friends exchange friendship jewelry or buy matching outfits. Janet and me? We had a wedding for our cats.

The Wedding of Astrid Blue-Hall and Sampson Hall – June 23, 2016

That’s right! Last year at the BlogPaws Conference we held a wedding for Janet’s Astrid and my Sampson. We had several special friends in attendance, of the human and stuffed variety. It was a joyous occasion – one that Sampson and I will always look back on fondly.

Today, Sampson and Astrid are celebrating their one-year anniversary. It has been a wonderful year full of love. I know that Sampson loves his beautiful Astrid with all his heart, and so do all of us here. Happy Anniversary, you two love birds! Here’s to many more years of love!

    This is from a person who had a real Justice of the Peace marry two Fox Mulder and Dana Scully dolls in Las Vegas…concatulations to Sampson and Astrid, on your 1st anniversary. Traditionally, and nothing about this is traditional, but I digress…the first anniversary gift is paper. Bet both of you enjoy sitting on or chewing up some!

    Oh my cat! How cute is this! here’s wishing many more happy years and lasting friendships! Janet is indeed a super nice lady and feel I honored to have met her at this year’s conference. With the hectic schedule we didn’t mingle much, but was so happy I finally met the big-hearted lady who hosts the awesome Sunday Selfies blog hop. If you can keep a blog hop going for so long, you have to be something special.

    Happy anniversary to Astrid and Samson 💕
