“Goin’ to the Chapel and We’re…”

“Goin’ to the chapel and we’reGonna get married…” I can’t count how many times in the past two weeks I’ve had people singing these lyrics as they’re passing by me. But each time they do, it’s a reminder that, yes, it is getting closer. In fact, it’s just under three weeks away. I briefly mentionedContinue reading ““Goin’ to the Chapel and We’re…””

I then leave for work at the dark hour of 5:40. Two-and-a-half hours later, I walk out of the wrapperContinue reading “A Birthday He’ll (We’ll) Never Forget”
