  1. Thanks for sharing your "fours," Jonsi! I love the smell of a brand new doll, too! And I would love to have dinner with you, we'll work that in someday :)


  2. Aw, thanks for the tag, Jonsi! Edith Piaf - her voice just gives me chills.

  3. @Upsi - My pleasure! I told DH you said we'd have dinner someday and he said, "Why that would be splendid!"

    @Shaun - You're welcome. I'm a big fan of your blog, perhaps because when I first read your posts you reminded me a bit of DH. Also, if you've never seen it, I highly recommend the movie "La Vie En Rose" starring Marion Cotillard, as well.

  4. Ooooo, I like the dinner question! Loved Toxic Parents. And thanks, Jonsi.
