Been back from Brazil for three days... bad jet lag and also trying to go through the nearly 5000(!) photos I took. So haven't had a chance to catch up on people's streams since the airport last Sunday but looking forward to taking the time to do so soon.
Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for all your encouragement... and also a huge, huge thanks to the wonderful LJ who surprised me with the gift of a pro account shortly after I posted the photo with a question on whether it was worth it. What a lovely, generous, unexpected gesture... thanks, Lee!!
