Thinking about New Year’s has me thinking about the year-(almost)gone-by. The Christmas holiday just behind us, I’m also shoulder-deep in a desire to set more traditions in place in general […]

Weddings are occasions that bring together family and friends, both near and far. They mark new beginnings and allow us to witness the love and commitment between two people.
