Hello, dearest IrinaAh! Smiles. The other day I was out and about and it seems like there were lots of people smiling while I was at the post office and grocery store. Just waiting in line, people were pleasant...it makes all the difference in the world! I am still creating your pillow. I'm trying to get everything I want on the pillow to 'come together' and I am waiting for one final touch which should arrive in the mail. It is fun creating goodies for my friends! I have a small shoe box full doll making fabrics and goodies my friend who lived in France sent to me a year before she passed away suddenly...I cherish that box and also have every single one of her emails printed out on paper just as a reminder that our friends are precious.I traded a box with her too, as both of us knew each would cherish each others kindred spirit presents. To me, this is what life in the blogging world is all about; inspiration and encouragement around the world from our friends. Anita is making such wondrous ethereal creations! And I am so happy you and she are able to visit with each other in person!How truly marvelous that is!Have a truly special week, and I hope you are staying cool in this weather. My sister will be traveling to Minnesota in the next couple of days with her husband and kiddos as she travels across the U.S. to drive all the way to California (with short stops here and there). She will drop her husband off where he has been staying and working in Minnesota (near Vadnis Heights) and she will continue the journey. This is a long post, hope that is okay!!!love and hugs,Teresa
Oh, Irina, that photo of the little boy looks just like our James Dean!!! Or like he did a few years ago. Now he's a grown up 6.5! But still, nothing is as sweet as the smile of a child!! Thank you for coming over to wish me a Bon Voyage!!! Mwah!!!xxDawne
Hi Irina,Thanks for your visit and for your sweet comments. I find that it's easier for me to blog about Maximus than to keep up with his baby book. I still need to add some things in there, but I don't like the "cookie cutter" stuff and the limited space, because I end up writing in the margins with arrows, etc. and my handwriting starts to get sloppy. LOL...but I guess both ways to document have there pluses. :)Have a wonderful Wednesday!Heidi
Keep smiling Irina!
You just made me smile Irina - your posts are always so inspiring and kind! Have a super day!
