Very interesting..thanks for sharing :) It was nice to get to know even more about yourself..
I do like Baileys as well..I usually have Baileys with coffee around Christmas time as a treat.
We are actually going to name our little girl Poppy..I do like that name. Daisy and Lottie are also very lovely as well.
The cherry blossom perfume sounds like a very pretty scent, I will have to keep my eye out for that one..
Have a great day today!
