Happy Anniversary Charlie!

SEVEN wonderful years….OK, we are a normal couple, so not everyday is wonderful. Some days you actually would probably say are far from it, but I am still so very much in love with you! We have been thrown a few “curve balls” in life but I know with you by my side I will […]
