She writes so well about food that it makes me hungry. I have been to the Piedmont area once (is it really already 20 years ago) and I want to go back.

I love that stuff, so this was an enjoyable, quick read for me. I...

One was very spot on, he used nothing just looking to my aura (nearly scary, but also fascinating) but the other two I have seen were rubbish (they used pictures or jewelry).

My husband was Mr. Christmas himself, so since being with him I only had to follow and let him do what he likes best (tree, decoration, foo...
