Someone else finished what I began

I like to put decoration details around the house according to the different seasons of the year. At the moment I have decorated my dining table in a beach theme because of the summer.

It is not the same to know him by reference

Yesterday we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, although a little differently because of COVID times.

For example, my daughter always looks new because she does not let it drop before changingContinue reading “Each sponge resembles its owner”
