      Hi Veronica! Thank you that’s very sweet of you to offer. I understand. I thought maybe you had a bakery. Why don’t you have a bakery? You do great work! 😀

        Yes, we do tend to get over dependent on our cell phones! Can’t leave the house without them, whatever did we use to do before…..

      Ha, ha! It’s funny how some of these words make so much sense after we’ve read them. Like bedgasm and cellfish. 😀 Some of these are going to stick for sure.

      Hi Joy! I have a puppy who definitely has carcolepsy and a couple of acquaintances who are a little on the cellfish side. 😉 It was my pleasure sharing with you on Treasure Box Tuesday. 😀
