But every now and then I’ll wax nostalgic on something from childhood and with shocked amazement realize that it was purely a regional thing.   I’m still shocked that in some parts of the country munchkins and donut holes … [Read more...]

It was amazing and sentimental and sweet and a total miracle of a surprise. After being blindfolded for 45 minutes, I opened my eyes in a church filled with mason jar candles. A white dress and bouquet were … [Read more...]
