Summer In January


What belongs to her lives in me.  And the heart of my daughter brings out the little girl in me.  Twirls have never felt so lovely and never looked so fun.  The kiss of sunshine was gentle on a bright day and we were in little girl heaven.   So as we prayed against the floods in Brisbane we send a little dry love to our family and friends as they do their best to stay safe and dry.

And to our friends around this country covered in snow, we mail you a ray of warmth as our 70 degree weather soothes our goosebumps from the days before.  Southern California, though often crowded, cranky, and over priced, is rather beautiful, quiet and peaceful on our Summer Day in January!
