  2. Hi Kathie –
    I love April too. I’m working every day on Christmastime 1945 – it’s basically written, at least the rough draft. I guess you could say I’m in the preliminary stages of revision.
    Thank you for your comment!!


  3. No matter where on Earth you call home, Spring is a beautiful time of year. The flowers that Lei’s are created from are in full bloom here & cannot pass one by.
