Links I Love Week 32

It was a big week at home. We wrote the copy for our wedding invitations which were very exciting. I am still navigating through the switch from laptop to iMac and I had a few hiccups this week and got locked out of both computers. Luckily, I purchased apple care with my computer and they were so patient and helpful.

Readers voted on a Paris calendar cover for 2023 this week. I have it narrowed down to two and they are currently with my designer.

I am also working on new notecards, notebooks, and wrapping paper!

  1. I pray you & your husband are on the mend. You certainly outdid yourself on today’s Sunday blog. I spent over an hour…. Re: Luxurious comfortable travel: I was very young when I flew to NYC from PHX in the early 1950’s. It was grand; I felt like a princess. The food was outstanding!

I just checked with the airline (Alaska) and using their chat function I was able to get a flight credit of about $600 without having to cancel and rebook.

    • Hi May!

      This makes me so happy! Thank you. I hope you have a great trip and put that saved money towards something great.
