KORALEE! My beloved friend, how I wish YOU THE BEST RECOVERY!! I am sitting here typing while I hack away coughing!! I believe mine is due to allergies and sanding and painting....but you my friend, I was thinking of you yesterday and shot up a prayer for you. I so believe that as teachers we put out so much energy that when it is time to stop, our bodies take over and say, "ALRIGHT, I AM FIGHTING BACK NOW!" Ooops! That is our cue to take that 4 hour nap! I hope this weekend finds YOU refreshed and ready to enjoy a creative DOWN TIME,just for you!

I LOVE THIS HAT. ANYTHING PAPER makes me HAPPY! This one has a famous aura about it now, having been worn by several birthday princesses and kings! AND IN A MAGAZINE? STUNNING!

Well my sweet, my girlfriend arrives on Monday and I will be off for about a week. I will miss you all. MUCH LOVE, Anita
