  1. Hey Phyllis I love you FOTDs. I don’t know if this is too much to ask, but is it possible to include pictures which are not too zoomed in? I understand that zoomed in pictures are necessary to show the details, but I feel that the closeness makes it a bit difficult to see the overall look. Thank you for your time, and have a great day.
