As we roll into the anniversary of our special day, I am celebrating! How, you ask? Well, I started my day with not one, but two ‘DEEP core’ weight-loss donations (… and it hurt!). Armed with nothing stronger than Motrin, we went to celebrate … at my local glass supplier – while DH went to Harbor Freight … ah, wedded bliss!
