Everything I came up with was like taking spices to the Orient. It’s no good giving my heart and my soul because you already have these. So I’ve…

~ Magic ~ Celebrating Winter in style! So much fun….how I love this magic When I asked Kat if she and her family would be into a celebratory play session at 8:20am as the sun rose behind the lake, she said, ‘Yes!!’ ~ Always up for some glorious costumed creativity and play.
