Happy April! This weekend brings our first 2018 wedding and I can’t wait to see Dale & Jake tie the knot on Saturday 😀 I’m also looking forward to April because March was not my favorite month; My Uncle Donny passed away after some long health struggles, and there was some #MarchSadness. But there were good […]

On turning 30 Turning 30 is one of those life events that seems like a BIG. DEAL. I wonder if the people perpetuating that message about turning 30 also believe that high school truly includes the best day’s of one’s life.
