high heels and the captain...

day of the seafarer...
Of course you know by now that it is officially the Day of the Seafarer all over the world.  A moment when we take the time to thank all of the men and women who bring us 90% of what we live with each and every day.  When I look around the house, it's stunn...

This is a beautiful post! I have been out of the blogging world for a little while, and I didn't realize you have moved down south! Maybe you are close to me!
