Thanks Dwight! What an amazing family story, cheers for sharing it with us! Love the photos too!


Thank you for this wonderfull love stories.
Through my reading to number of bloggs and from my personal life i do believe that "love story" exist every where. Whatever the condition you put people in it: war, peace, lock them out, in a city, in relegious town, in corupted town...
That means that love do exist around us. Just like the wind. U can't feel it. But it is there.
Any way sorry for the long comment and i hope you post more of them
best regards..

Hi, Pablo. Where we wrote, "Each one showed great care and feeling if not skill," we meant that it showed great care, feeling, AND skill. We apologize for the mistake and appreciate you catching it.

A lovely love story. Who doesn't love a love story? But why ruin it by qualifying Paul's little gifts as made with not great skill? You make one of those cute little things with a pocket knife, buster. Don't judge.
