Valentine’s Traditions

Merry Christmas 2017!


Once upon a time when dinosaurs wandered the earth, also known as when I was in Jr. High, paisley print and bell sleeves made a bit of a comeback and along with them, corduroy pants. I had about five pairs and I wore the crap out of those puppies all through high school. Come to think of it, I may more »
