twenty fourteen


2013 had it all...
It had the highs & lows.

Looking forward to this new year
and all the good things I'm sure it holds!!!

Thank you so much for your love and support.


Had to start the year with
these lovely Colombian roses.
I am in Bogota with my family and
can't get enough of the beautiful flowers
around here! Just breathtaking!
