Hello, friends!, It’s so hard to believe that I’ve only been back from France for three weeks!

This Week at the Shop!

Greetings, sugar plum! I hope that the universe is being kind to you, since we last talked!

None of this…

They said it would never happen!  Bob, AKA Mr. Wonderful, was a bachelor until we met, when he was a youthful 55 years old.  His family was pretty sure he would never marry and settle down!  I had failed miserably in my first marriage and was doubtful I was good marriage material.  Divorce…
