  6. Gigi, I'm so happy you popped by my blog to meet me (via France no less!), as it gave me a chance to look around a bit here to admire your writing and photography. And to find out you'll be headed back to Maine at some point, was very exciting for me to read! I am now a follower! ~Lili

  16. B is for books of course! I always give books as gifts to new babies...and very often it is a Beatrix Potter book...classic...

  17. That quote is fantastic! And I've always adored the Tales by B. Potter. I can still recall in grade school borrowing them at age 5 & 6 from the damp, dusty school library before I had my own collection of the books... I remember those stories, the dank scent of the pages...This post takes me back. I never cared much for TV, still don't--ha! I wonder what the world would have been like without TV ever having been developed...something to consider! Happy Day, Gigi :o) ((HUGS))
