10 Years. 2 Kids. 0 Pets. And A Partridge In A Pear Tree

 It’s Our 10 Year Wedding Anniversary So Here’s The Unpolished Truth: I wear glasses.  You probably already know this.  Mine are dark.  They are black rimmed and they help me to see clearly.  They are not rose colored.  If you wear rose colored glasses and choose to see life through those type of lenses, more … Continued
