A Valentine Lifestyle

A Valentine Lifestyle This weekend includes Valentine’s Day. It is a special time of the year for Janet and me, since our first date was on February 12. We were married later that year on December 27, but we prefer to celebrate around this time of the year. I am grateful for 40 years of […]
