Any Other Photo {Hats and Dunc}

Round Eastern Europe By Mistake – Notes from my Diary, 2003

Readers, I have a confession to make.  I was all set to write something profound for this afternoon’s post, and then, when going through my old files on my computer I came across this beauty and thought sod it…profound can wait.  Profound can wait until next week, right?  In the summer of 2003 I had [...]

A birth story {Part The First}
