Well...how do I top the Ren Faire series? Oh, so much pressure! :)
I guess when you are unsure, you fall back on what you know, eh? So, I offer you a rose. Which I saved from the Dread Pirate Spike.
Speaking of rose, have a listen to La Vie En Rose
by Louis Armstrong. Whenever I hear this song, it reminds me of a trip to Santa Barbara where I had dinner at a cajun restaurant and the whole restaurant sang and couples danced to this song. :) It was a fun night.
