  1. And now I'm crying again!!!!!!

    Oh Melissa, this is just gorgeous, how lovely of you.....thank you so much. And thank you too for the email this morning....that was perfect and very thoughtful of you

    Okay, off to cry a little more now....good tears really but tears nonetheless :) xoxox

  2. Yeah! I can't believe it's Ten on Ten already. It seems like just yesterday it was August 10th. Maybe because I spent the majority of Aug in bed?!?

  3. Off to the airport,
    but had to check your
    blog before I left!
    I will visit Simone
    later tonight; Joy
    and I are already

    Big hugs,
    xx Suzanne

  7. That ten on ten sounds such a brilliant idea. Can't wait to see your day in pictures.

    P.S I noticed the new header too. Pleased that mac is such a joy!

  8. Looking forward to seeing your 10 on 10 pictures. I'm sure they will be stunning. I love your flower. My roses did awfully this year... I think it was something to do with the fact that I kept forgetting to water them...Thank you for jumping on board with Friday Flower. I've created a linky thing (correct terminology only *cough cough*). Have a great weekend... I have a weekend of gardening... or attempting to! Lx

  9. Hi Melissa! just a quick note, thanks for stopping by me and I just posted a FF and made a link with Laura. Catch you later! Maureenxx

  10. Sweet, sweet post. And your rose is gorgeous.

    I'm not sure what 10 on 10 is, but have a lovely day!
