    Leonor,

    tuas trufas já me venceram uma vez e eu não vou resistir nunca mais. Vou entregar os pontos imadiatamente. E agora então, com as fotos ainda maiores elas ficaram ainda mais dominantes. Poderosas.

    Lindo blog e lindas fotos, a altura de tuas trufas,

    Ainda, se eu gostasse de coca cola eu ia querer me banhar naquele copo de chocolate…

    Beijos,

    Claudia
