warm memories

Getting warmer – the winter coat is off, the pants rolled up.

Warm at last! A major architectural project

    Looks fabulous, Beth. Anna looks like she's wearing her hair like Marj Simpson! Glad you're back – I've missed your blog! Love, Lani

    You're right about that pic of Anna's hair – though perhaps she wouldn't appreciate the comparison. Her hair is so very thick. But not blue. So glad you're out there, my Lan.
