And grand.

  1. AH! Love her new haircut. Can’t wait to find out how it goes with Henry. 😉 I think I’m going to have to do a few micros of my own while I’m in the UK next month.

    1. Please share your micros with us when you do write them! And ENJOY the UK!!! 🙂 And we’re all hoping for the best for her with Henry! 😉
