thanks for sharing these, it's raining here in Alabama so I am wishing for some sunshine.

Sounds like a nice time.

I had to smile at your gratitude for a new perm to make your hair "care-free" again. For lots of my life I thought lovely straight hair would be truly easy to deal with. Grass is always greener.....

Looks like it was a really great day. So jealous of anyone with warm temps right now, especially with more snow predicted for the weekend. Isn't it supposed to be spring??
