5 stars!!!
great episode Girls.
and this time, I nearly spluttered my drink over the keyboard when my name was mentioned. :))
Thanks for acknowledgement. If you check the postmark, should have Florida on. Kimberly was my PA for this. Unfortunately, altho' I mailed out early, she didn't receive them until New Year weekend. :((

Love to watch your podcast ladies!

Your package came on Tuesday, Wendy which was wonderful because it was Julie's birthday so she got to open an extra present! absolutely beautiful. She loved the sweater and hat and you will be hearing from her as soon as her special thank you cards come in.

I can't wait to see Trevor in that little set!!!

Be listening next week! Take care ladies!

Love, Aunt Carol
