my day has been going really well today, and i am thankful for the technology that allows me to sit in the comfort of my home and have a three hour face to face conversation with my closest friend, who happens to be all the way in oregon.

I saw some blossom in Cologne this weekend, but none around my house yet. Looking forward to seeing a few flowers like yours in the coming weeks/month (crossed-fingers)

That just made me smile for about ten different reasons. Thank you, for that. Anything blooming would make me happy right now, but I ordered seeds this weekend, that will help also!

"Thank you" always brings magic to my world. Your daughter is amazingly beautiful! The reflections in the turquoise of the building lend an element of mystery. I see Spring is peeking out at you!

"Time to go home," "Have a nice weekend," "Meow," lotsa things, I like yours.

'morning, mom!' from my boys and 'oh, hello!' on the phone with my mom are pretty magical to me ...
