summer’s gone

the summer’s gone and i have a new group of little lovies. i’ll admit, i miss my former lovies dearly,

but these new little tods are keeping me so busy my head is spinning!

I am purposefully not doing a Sep 11 post because I dont want to dwell on the horrific events.

Instead I’d like to think of happy thoughts. These pics from my summer of love make me smile.  maybe you will too.
