Yes! I've seen it floating around too - so glad you reached up and grabbed it to turn it into your own marvelous masterpiece. Love it.

omg, you bring out such wonders in others, miss rachel! that is so well said "liv@choosing beauty". i'll just add, i can remember times in giving speeches when i couldn't stop the quiver, it was maddening. you just said and painted it "RIGHT IN A NUTSHELL". HERE is one of many nicknames i am calling you, "right on rachel".. there will be more you know. xo
