in a beam of sunlight
our gratitude
for love, home and family
forever in our hearts

Today is Thanksgiving’s Day in the US and we want to take this opportunity to say a very big thank you to all our blogging friends for their love and support, our friends who work as volunteers in the shelters and everyone who helps to make this world a better place.

If any of you want to join Eivor and Pearl in their dance, here are Mumford & Sons performing their song ‘Guiding Light’:


With love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
