23 years ago Tina and I got up on a Saturday morning to prepare for a wedding. Our wedding. I slept in my store that night, woke up and headed to my friend’s house to make preparations for that day. My wife hung out with girlfriends and got ready. Continue reading Tina And I 23 Years Later!

And a few short months later… Continue reading Tina and I Celebrate 21 Years Together
