But even without things, she created a warm and loving home. She’s a naturally hospitable person. Because of her example and my early

working with dimensions right now- talk about a pain! But this is exactly the size I would want. Would you mind telling me the dimensions- just an estimate would do ( : Thanks for your time!!
