A Wedding in our Midst!

Posted by Kasia Faini on

Our Son is getting Married!One of the most joyful times in life is to see your children fall in Love and choose to get married and look to starting a family of their own. It’s funny how some of the most joyful times can also bring stress into the mix. With a son it is easier than if you have a daughter, because the family of the daughter is much more involved in the planning of a wedding. We get off a little easier with regards to that part.
