A Love Story

I have not yet mentioned here on this platform how my husband and I became that - husband and wife! What a fun ride and a story I love to share.

A few days later we watched a documentary called When the Iron Bird Flies (amazing film and well worth your time!!) and decided that we were not living our truths and decided right then and there that we needed to escape the concrete jungle,
