Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!

    Coming to you from the 4Ms hop. I just love The Piano Guys rendition of “Happy Together” but then I love most of the music that these guys produce.

    Hi Ramona!

    You are so sweet to have featured me! xoxo!!

    I know I’m late this week. . . been having a rough time with migraines. But I know I can always be encouraged here! The Piano Guys video had me laughing out loud!! They are so talented, and funny!

    And, I just met Cynthia Rutchi in May at the writing conference I go to!! She is fantastic! What a small world. . . .

    I hope you have a wonderful day Ramona! 🙂

      I am SO sorry that the migraines are getting the better of you now – I know how terrible it can be to focus when you are experiencing them! I pray you are feeling better soon.

      How COOL that you met Cynthia at your recent writing conference – I bet she was an inspiration to meet!

      Have a blessed day and we’ll chat more soon! 🙂

  14. Love the idea of using the guitar case as a bookshelf. So cool! Thanks for hosting the hop.
