Reminds me of another great quote... "I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship." A great analogy for life, non?

I think it's Louisa May Alcott who said it.

Happy Sunday, my sweet. Your letter's going into the post today, all 9 pages of it!!!

:) I made a little edit on my blog post just for you!

I feel a little silly doing those things . . . reminds me of those email personality surveys that went rampant in like 1999 . . . but a) I feel the need to acknowledge when someone gives me something sweet like that, and b) I love reading other people's too!

Catch up time for Claire & Micaela: SOON. please!!!
