I will attempt to recap but I will warn you, its not going to sound good as good it was… Some things just need to be experienced….  Friday morningI woke up and our kitchen table was decorated by the girls. A sign saying “Happy Birthday Early” Empty wine bottles were painted and crafted by Faye.  Friday weView full post »
