It was so neat when she contacted me after she and Basil got engaged to see if we would think about coming to Palm Springs in March for their wedding. Fast forward a year, and the wedding day had arrived! […]

Polly & Ben in the Scottish Highlands

Tom and I were packing our bags for our trip to Scotland in early May when I asked him if he would be taking this trip if we weren’t married. He paused and said he didn’t think he’d travel nearly as much without me and I realized the same is true of myself. We love […]
