Merry Christmas, goddess! I'm glad you made Walla Walla a part of your 2007 and I hope you make it part of 2008. Or maybe I'll make Minnesota a part of my 2008. Either way, you make all my years better (and I've known you for a better part of my years).

I Hope So said...

your 2007 sounded superduper. you are the poster child of coolness. sexy, independent coolness. can't wait to bask in your presence! :)

Cerise said...
