I have a new found love. We've only been together for a week, and only seen each other 4 times, but I'm head over heels.

The Older Sister / Why Yoga? Why Not!


I may have told you before about how I have reconnected with many of my classmates from the CHS Class of 73. It has been a wonderful time in my life. We are all so accepting now.
