  1. What a fun post… you are the first person I know who has “flown through the air, with the greatest of ease” …. and the only person I have met who doesn’t like cheesecake. I too love marcasite jewelry… and think Thin Mints are the best of the Girl Scout Cookies (but I think Samoas are still yummy despite being sticky). If you like history – I may have some good book recommendations.

    Thanks for being an organ donor and including that touching video!

    1. Great Post! You must go to the Statue of Liberty – seeing it up close is a true NY experience and Ellis Island is way more interesting than I thought it would be! Loved the pictures that accompanied your post too!

  2. I am LOVING Souzapalooza…usually makes me stop and smile, laugh, contemplate, feel good..they’re light and breezy and I love em! Keep them coming!
