Finding the Lovely

Finding the Lovely

Sometimes, you just have to smile. Wednesday was my husband’s birthday, and he is the latest victim in our seasonal saga of illness after illness (right now, he’s battling influenza B and bronchitis).  On top of not feeling well, he’s celebrating one year before a colonoscopy becomes mandatory (yippee!!).
