  1. Angelle! I had no idea you were specializing in birhts! I am so glad I came across your blog. Now I have someone to refer everyone that still emails me from Louisiana. Love love love all the pictures. It’s such a magical moment to capture for families and I am sure you feel about it the same way I do. Yay! I have answers now.

  2. It’s a relief to find someone who can explain things so well

  3. Investing in gold and silver has always given good returns. Moreover they are safe as well, no matter how much the prices of other investments fell, gold falls to very minimal levels. In fact the more other investments fell gold rises.

  4. i'm totally digging nana sweaters lately – florals, elasticated bottoms – yeah baby. love your umbrella, it's too windy for them here in wellington – i think i saw three in rubbish bins yesterday haha.xx

  5. This helped me so much! I always wondered why I’m just NOT able to stop looking for SOMETHING in the kitchen! When I finished eating some grilled sandwich I felt like moving on to something else cause it really didn’t satisfy me. And then I ate potato chips and yet, the same feeling. It maddened me. And now, I understand it all. Thanks

  6. Can you please give more specific names of Hormone repalcement therpy? Will a ob/gyn be able to prescribe? A family Doctor? I was taking a cream from “Women’s International” in Phoenix,Az but I stopped because i could not pay for it any longer. Thank you for this letter and i would appreicate any replies.

  7. I have deeply missed her as well. I often speak to her and listen to the silence for her word tincture. This last year has been very painful for me, I long for her wisdom. Thank you for your blog.Blessed Be and DO

  8. Tämä oli tosi mielenkiintoinen, vaikkakin pelottava ja traaginenkin lukukokemus. Käsittääkseni muuten Genovalta on alkuvuodesta ilmestynyt uusi romaani nimeltään Left Neglected jossa nuori nainen joutuu auto-onnettomuuteen jonka seurauksena hänelle tulee "neglect" eli hän ei tiedosta vasenta puoltaan ollenkaan. Sekin vaikuttaa mielenkiintoiselta aiheelta!:)

  9. What a treat it would be to be one of your guests! And here am I sipping on an early morning cup of Earl Grey tea and wishing I had a tea cake to match! 😀
