    1. Hi, Julie - "easy" and "it came effortlessly" in my mind are pretty much the same thing. I am always so happy when that happens!

    1. Hi, Sandra - I probably should have said that this one flowed effortlessly. I guess that is pretty much the same as easy - and its a minor miracle when that happens!
