Who looks like whom?

From the moment the kids were born, there has always been a slight competition between me and Mr. Sunglasses as to who looks like whom. It’s not in a negative way, but it’s always fun to know whether your child has inherited one of your physical traits. As much as I tried my hardest to […]


La Fête : Theme, Location, and Budget
