I can’t begin to put into words how much my heart is breaking today.
My family has been blessed with a lot of great friends throughout the years. However, when my parents became friends with Steve and Kathleen Stroud,

THE BEST family holiday gift…..ever. :) {Bryan, College Station Photographer}

Waffle Cookies!!

Tonight is the potluck dinner for my husband, Dan’s, band and I have been trying all week to decide what to bring.
