What Love Looks Like

Reflecting on one of our wedding photos, I am shocked how fast ten years have gone by just like that! My parents and lots of older friends and family really were trying to give me good advice for all the times they’d say, “Enjoy the moment, time goes by quickly. You’ll blink and years will…
