. . . with so much happening lately, had nearly forgotten to wish you a happy february! already into the second month of this new year, and must confess that this month is actually one of my very favourites, for many reasons, and especially this year, with all of the exciting new things still to come [so very soon now — can not wait to tell you] . . . hope your week has been lovely, lovely — a few more things to share today, and still, weekend wishes & links, but for now, a quick hello on this beautiful february day . . .
