WEDDING BELLES & WEDDING FAILS

“I love reading your blog Pam.” I hadn’t written one in a while and to be honest I’d been rather lacking inspiration. Maybe because I’d been so happy?

WHITE GIRLS ON VACATION

“And how do you feel?” “Well, Doctor S said that when it kicked in, I’d know… That it would be like finding light in the dark… I am not really sure that I am seeing the whole light yet?” The doctor laughed from the bottom of his belly. “Listen, I wouldn’t quite word it as … Continue reading WHITE GIRLS ON VACATION
