Oct 11

A Lovely Date Day

Nov 4

A year ago today. It all began a year ago today. Our story, our journey, our life together. Today is also Matt’s birthday. So funny that we “matched” and started chatting on his birthday. I thought it was fitting that I share our wedding day a year to the day we virtually met. It was […]
