HOW DID I MISS THIS POST?????

I KNOW...this morning, I was so worried about getting to work in time for a meeting and for photocopying that I was unable to visit blogs!

Oh my friend, the first day back was LOVELY, like yours was! The kids were a bit tired, a little cranky to get to work, but wasn't I also a bit....bummed out too? teeheee

I AM SO GLAD you felt good about your day too!

Koralee, these photos are award-winning photos that are just stunning. I had never been a RED lover, but YOU, YOU have taught me to see the world in color. Magnificent work here my friend, and every thing you do has a huge smile written all over it. I just showed Ruben your photos here and he said, "It sure looks like she is having fun." See? Your photos say it all.

LOVE YOU! Anita

Hi Koralee! Happy New Year to you! How colorful 2011 was indeed! I don't know what it is tonight, but your photos on my little iPod look 3-D. The ones that really POP are the ones with the red sprinkles.

God bless you dear heart !
