    I've never heard this song before by the Celtic Women. I used to work for EMI Music and they were sooo popular!

    Heya Girlykins! I'm enjoying looking at the progress of the work you're doing for the center. [I just had to say that.] It's been ages since we've spoken last and I have truly missed that times we've spent giggling and carrying on like we used to do. Yet, life happens, doesn't it?

    Much love to you and the kiddos.

    Hi Kim, how are you?
    This one is lovely.
    The background is solid purple. I would love to see some lighter gradient blended with the purple color. It would give glow to the picture. Don't you think so?
