    Aaaah, i love bows lately. I think they’ve been a nice trend last winter (blogged about it some months ago…) and apparently they keep being hot!

    I love bows on everything right now (well… not everything all at once). But they’re so girly and perfect for spring!

    I will admit that I have a love for bows. I’ve come so very far — when I was younger, I HATED bows. Now, I find myself more and more drawn to them. And all of these are so wonderful!

    Hey Sandy,

    It was a delight having you visit my site 🙂 I noticed that we have some other things in common (besides the domain name)… not too bizarre similarities, but just enough to make me smile!
    I’m with you on books for school and magazines. Actually, I read more non-fiction. Up until I met my husband did I start delving into fiction novels and appreciating reading in general. The love of our lives changes us! I was married 2 months before you did, so we’ve been married for a year. Your anniversary is coming up soon. Isn’t it incredible that it’s been a year? I can’t even believe it for my own.

    Anyway, I love bows and anything nautical. Your site and photography are pretty, too. 🙂

    See ya around!

    and i think those pink shoes are my new fave!!
    hooray for bows!
