This had me thinking back to the very time I met you over lunch. K is wise and I miss the way she crafts a story like no one I've ever met. The meal sounds scrumptious!

Hi ...I found you from My Hidden Muse ...we both heart-ed the same post!

And I noticed you are involved with Mondo Beyondo. I was thinking about registering for the online course that starts in January. Did you take the course already? Can you tell me anything about it?

You might want to check out one of my recent posts ...called "Golden Blogroll" ...I think you & I have similar tastes :-)
