Happy letter writing Shelby!

Although Mom is gone, she doesn't want us to be sad. How do I know this? After she died, every time I thought about Mom being gone & would start to feel blue, a jaunty little tune would come on the radio. It was set to kind of a Calypso beat & had the line in it "Life goes on" I don't know the song or who sang it, but it just seemed like a message from Mom "Hey, don't be sad, my spirit is still going on"

With that in mind, I was thinking about what I like to smell like. I'm not a perfume person, but I love the scent of coconut & vanilla. It reminds me of sunshine & a tropical vacation.

What favorite scents do you like to wear?

Congratulations, Shelby!
I'm not much on wearing scents. But I love scented shower gels and such.

I love your birthday party picture! What kind of cake did you bake?
I'm not a perfume girl either, but I could probably smell like cinnamon rolls all day. That would be okay!
