Oh Kim what a beautiful, beautiful book and I am so very honoured to be a part of it.

I bet you were greated with wild enthusiasm from the furries when you returned - and I am so glad you have enjoyed a good time away.

Hugs

That book is fabulous!
You did have a magical time, didn't you? I might have to put Valley Ridge on my calendar for next year!
I'm a shmuck- I STILL haven't finished my necklaces for you and Kecia!

OH... that VR is SO magical !! I think they must spray something in the air there that makes us all keep coming back for more !!!

I know your time there was just as special as mine this year and dang it....NEXT YEAR let's coordinate our days to be there together !!!

And yes....my cheeks are still hurting from smiling and laughing after being with Misty for the past two days....but it's a VR pain that feels SO good !!!
