The Real Fantasy Baseball . . . Chicago Style!

Mindful Monday . . .

Beautifuls! How are you doing? I’m “emotional” in the very best way!  ( Sending out a full heart hugs within the words I write. I hope you feel them!)

The shelfie image  (above) is from 2013.   The floral scene, featured by Gardenista, calls for “off on the wall” fun. “Let’s all just play florist today and leave our computers home!” What threw me back to 2013, was this post ,…

To February . . . a Blue Valentine! . . .w/(Love)
