Holly (15.10.10)

It seems like ages ago now, but in October my dear friend Holly came to visit.  

A day trip to Cambridge

A weekend in London
Portobello Road, Boden, Harrod', eating and lots of good conversation!  It was the most perfect girl-weekend!  Thank you for making the long trip Hol! 

Holly and her husband, Kumen, are the most amazing people.  They have long awaited the blessing of children in their home.  The link below is for their adoption profile.  If you know of anyone looking for wonderful adoption parents, please pass it along.
