Wow! What a difference a month has made! I had my right hand surgery on April 10th…and the left hand done on May 2nd. It’s incredible how effective the procedures were.

She both inspires and intimidates me~~~and I love her for it. The fact that she actually completes her projects puts me to … Continue reading First Annual State~of~the~Blog Review
