Do You Believe in Magic?? I do - sometimes!

Saturday, January 26, 2013      5 comments

I guess it boils down to how you define the word 'magic' but maybe I'm just not that picky about definitions - when something surprises me and seems to defy my ordinary expectations, I call it 'magic' One example is when I met my husband - ... Read more
