Comment: Hi Laura,
Thanks for sending me the nice papers, cards, etc. I like them a lot and I also love the way you decorated the envelope, with those beautifull postage stamps!
A great mailbox surprise!
Comment: Wow I wish I could give you 10 hearts! I love the little book! I saw the youtube video on making those out of 1 sheet of paper but haven't tried it myself. Yours is fantastic. I also loved the Ginger Chews, I'm a huge fan of ginger! And the gold paint pen, I go through those so quick. Thank you! xoxoxo
Comment: Thank you Laura for your charming 3 things letter! I so enjoyed reading all about you and the area that you live in. I will certainly be answering your letter back. You seem like such an interesting person! I pray your day has been blessed as you have blessed mine. :-)
Comment: I think I saw the movie version of P&P a long time ago, but I can't remember. I have to see it again. I am reading the book for the first time now. I have only ever read Northanger Abbey and that is because I lived in London at the time and visited Bath. I read Lord of the rings too. I recently saw Les Miserables and loved it. I bought the book, but have not read it yet. I live about 3 hrs from the city, it is more country here. It is nice that you asked this, because usually when I tell people that I live in New York, they usually think the city. Wow I can't believe you were in the city during hurricane Sandy!!! That must have been tough. Thank you for the book recommendations and the sunshine!!! It is still struggling here to stay nice.
Comment: Thanks for your letter - your envelope was so cute. How funny that Basingstoke's roundabouts have featured in that book you have read. It is actually kind of famous for having lots of them but I like them! They keep traffic moving! Will write back soon!
Comment: Your letter was so interesting to read :) Definitely going to write you back though. But why didn't you write it (instead of typing)? I think it's more personal when people write, but typing is fine with me too :). XO
Comment: Thank you for your letter! :)
Yes Germany has still the weekend pass ;) but it's much more expensive than in 1998 ;) (Because of the Euro everything is more expensive than in the 90's) Happy easter dear Laura! <3
Comment: Loved the fabric heart magnet! -totally gonna steal that idea, ha ha
And yes -we're actually in the middle if a blizzard at the moment....Spring definitely feels like a ways out at this point in time, hee hee
Take Care & Happy Swapping!
Comment: You really took your time with this electronic swap. Glad you received my reminder, I would hate to give a low rating.
Response: Hi Lorna, Maybe you were confused with the dates...? Partners were assigned on March 15 and the deadline is March 18. I posted my comment today (March 17), which is actually a day before the deadline. Anyway, hope you enjoyed it!
Comment: Laura, what fun it looked like you had this week! My son lovs bananas, I'm sure he would love a pirate one even more! I got a funny story about quail eggs ill have to share with you one time. Is your egg drop soup just like getting that 'ribbon' effect from the eggs when they are swirled in boiling stock? And why did you boil the chicken first to add to the casserole? I'm curious as I have always added raw meat to slow cook in my casseroles. Thanks for sharing these lovely photos with me.
Comment: I really enjoyed reading your answers. It's so funny how mothers would have a lot of the same answers...I laughed a few times :) Like the one where you said you'd ant to be stuck in an elevator with to the question "who would you like to be stuck in an elevator with for an hour"? haha, completely understandable!!
Comment: Thank you for sharing your photos with me! I **love** The Pioneer Woman ~ I have her 1st cookbook (Sadly, I can't get the 2nd book here in the UK :( ) & have tried the spaghetti casserole.. it's delicious! :D x
Comment: thankyou so much for your beautiful letter and recipe...kissing balls type it into yahoo and you will get loads of pics, their victorian huge christmas baubles that you can hang anywhere, very addictive :)
Comment: I really like your boards. You have some yummy looking recipes that I plan to try. I love the whatnots, too. I looked at all your boards while I was there, and I wound up following 7 of them! Thanks for sharing.
