  1. Dear Andrea Dawn,

    My how Gracie is growing! How beautiful! The sweet little girl at church in bare feet, love it! Need I mention toffee nut latte, I'm moaning here. Taste button alert, taste button alert!

    A home and a heavenly home...the best of all the thank-you's. We definitely were on the same page today, dear Sister.

    Love you, my Sister,

  2. I just loved this today! The tune to "Simple Gifts" is just playing over and over in my head today, and again as I read your list. Shoes that don't pinch! Now THAT is a treasure. All my life, shoes have been the biggest issue ever. I HATE shoes and live in my crocs! So glad I stopped by today. I always love it here!

  3. Andrea Dawn... your gift is so simply beautiful. Your photos are all stunning! Like Cora says," I always love it here!
    I haven't tried toffee nut latte but I make a latte at home here with a drip of real maple syrup. Yum!
    My violets and Christmas cacti are also in full bloom... so glad you have the same enjoyment !
    Cora I understand about crocs...

  4. Dear Susan,

    I can picture you in crocs, but, Cora, I hadn't had that in my mind for you. I know. I know. You garden and turkey vulture chase and train Buster, but... somehow it just hadn't occurred to me. I have revised my thinking. Crocs on all 3 of my cyberladies. Got it!

    You all make me smile,


Thanks for stopping by . . . appreciate your comments.
