Giving Thanks {Day 30}

When we got engaged, I was most excited for two things: 1. Pre marital counseling. 2. Writing thank you notes. What can I say? My mama raised me on thank you notes. I send a lot of hand written notes in my job, and recently I’ve had a lot of feedback from people- you’d be […]

Some people choose to have […]

My biggest […]
