I just stopped by your page to say hello. I enjoyed reading your journal. Thanks for sharing a part of your life with me. I like the quotes you included. What brought me here to post was the fact that you talked about touring a Frank Lloyd Wright home. I love his architectural work. You are not the first person to mention his work in a journal that I've received in another swap. The person also included a photo of his home. Thanks for sharing! Take Care!
