I still think of her and how precious it would be to have her in my life, her beautiful smile lighting up my every day. I think of how her life will be, how she will grow up and if someone will ever play with her the way I did, and love her the way I could. I hope she remembers our time together. I hope I may see her again...
I was s

pool and lots of greenery. So peaceful.
There were dinners and conferences, speeches introducing us to the history of this former Spanish colony. I saw a lot of pride and an interesting custom: no dessert, but instead platters of fruit served after every meal. I was grateful not to have the temptation of sugary sweets and thus less pounds to keep off.
Africa has its share of talented designers - what would a vacation for Marlo be without fashion? La Vie Couture put on a show of gorgeous dresses and of course I put on my own show, featuring Lous Vuitton.
