How I would love to visit Greece one day...I guess I need to get over my fear of flying first! lol Imagine being able to visit these churches in person, oh how wonderful that would be!! I hope this finds you well, dear Ann. I'm so behind in visiting but this time of year is always so busy. Sending big hugs. xoxo

Sometimes simple is best. I have so many fond memories of Greece as I took some high school students there over Easter week some years ago. Thanks Ann!
