  1. Did you give your recipe for your home made muffin ? I looked everywhere and can’t find it.

    Could you please send it to me.

    I love the way you dress and the natural healty glow you have. Truly an inspiration .

    Thank you Louise

    • Hi, Louise! Thank you for asking. I didn’t know people would be interested in it. I’m playing around with the recipe right now. I’ll definitely post it here if I feel it’s something other people might like, too. I so appreciate you taking the time to stop by and say hi and leave such a sweet compliment. Take care ~ Janis

  2. Hello, Janis!

    I am a Japanese woman learning English in Japan.
    I like the way you speak! So I watch your video almost every day to study English.
    I am looking forward to new video!

    • Hi, Susan! I’m so sorry, but I bought the blouse years ago. I love ruffles, and I hope we’ll be seeing more this year. If I find a current ruffle blouse, you can be sure I’ll be featuring it here! Thank you for visiting my blog and for your question. ~ Janis
