    Becca, Just scrolled through some of your recent posts (sorry I have not “been by” in a while). They are all delightful. I just watched Love Story last weekend–such a wonderful movie. And, your pets are all so cute–keeps you busy giving everyone their “fair share” of love , I’m sure. Love the chili pepper pic–very colorful. Such fun to see your art and read your lovely words. Have a great weedend. Mickie 🙂
