    Hello little sister...I hope this story will make go away our winter. I know many persons that will be happy to see the spring coming soon. Two nices colors, red for love and white for purity also. Very nice picture of yours and thank you for telling us how you celebrate spring in Bulgaria. There must me many people having the decorations worn around their wrists and dressed like going to a marriage. It's bery beautiful clothes too.

    I saw that you tried to had my Elvis video, and it didn't worked? Lately, some are having problems with their blogs. Delete the video and try again to see if it will work, if it doesn't work, I could try to help you. I wish you love, a lot of friendship around you, many hugs, kisses and a sweet touch to your heart.

    Take care of yourself and enjoy your day,

    Your little sunny brother.... :-)
