As you may know, I have a thing for vintage luggage. A while back, I bought a set of three, ugly, vintage suitcases for $5.00 on Kijiji, an on-line classified site in Canada.

You are a beautiful, caring soul and I cherish you every day! xoxK/P/B 😀
She was the bomb! I always looked forward to the intro to that show, the way she moved, her smile, her energy. I wanted to be ‘That Girl’ for sure.
YOU are charming, special to me and also one-of-a-kind. We’re “them girls”…LOL!
Oh I crack myself up. 😉
Thanks for being you and for everything you do K/P/B/KS
