Jun18 Easy Peasy

The first time I met Sherlyn and Andy was over dinner and we were at the restaurant for a good three hours.  We, of course, started off chatting about their wedding and their vision.  But then our conversation sidetracked and we soon realized we were talking about crafts and carpentry.  This was around t [...]
