Friendship: 12 DOG

Day three has brought me to something that I am most grateful for two reasons: advice and laughter. Today I am taking the time to acknowledge the people in my life who I am lucky enough to call a friend. My girl friends are my source of sharing giggles, tears, good news, bad news, and […]
