The photo of the ballerinas is beautiful. Fuschias are always so colorful and exotic looking to me.
And your answers to this meme are just great. I love your comments about what you're wearing, and also the two truths!! I can relate!
Sorry I haven't been by recently. Things just got piled up and I was running around in circles! I'll catch up though.
