Beautiful as always-!
Patty, where could I reach you by email about your photography & pictures?
Thank you so much-

Suzanne - February 6, 2015 - 11:13 pm

Hi Patty! Just realized
this week when I responded
by email to your lovely
comments on my blog that
you have are registered as
“no-reply blogger” on
Blogger/Google. So any
notes I’ve sent you in the
past have gone out into
the black hole! Ugh. Also
noticed that your blog has
mysteriously disappeared
from my blog list, so I’ve
just added you back. Hmm…

Hope your 2015 is off to
a great start and that you’ll
be back to blogging, soon.

Have a wonderful weekend!
