    1. Hey Shelly, thank you for this 4-letter comment. A very important word, indeed.

  2. I cannot wait to hear the details of this trip! I am definitely interested. Also I love the fact that 40,000000 was raised. How wonderful.

    Have fun in the hill country.

  3. Dear Marsha...thank you for your heart felt efforts responding to the ravages of Hurricane Harvey. I corresponded with you last year regarding an order for my son's girlfriend and my order of a ruana that decided not to show. You sent me a replacement are a class act. Truly I would love to join you on your trip to Italy...perhaps another time. Blessings...Susan


Please know how much I value your comments. I read every single one and do hope you will take the time to leave your thoughts. I think InstaGram with the Emojis have taken a lot away from blogging, but I love IG too.
