Don’t mention it 🙂 and Thank you so much for the kind words
whoops I wondered where I was going…I thought that it was about your Philip Treacy hat. You are a fabulous person Tamika and very beautiful(lucky lady) and I do hope that my adverse comments about those funny looking hats did not worry you.
At 72 years of age a hat is a hat and is supposed to be like they used to be , In their own way they are beautiful but not for me.
You will have a great successful life Miss Tamika and I am sure that you will be a person that any Mother would be proud of.
Thank you so so much for those beautiful words xx and no, your comment about the hats was no problem at all! Please don’t worry, your comment actually made me smile and laugh! hehe! lots of love
