SUMMER BABY

SUMMER BABY

Our first summer as parents was a memorable one. In between our move, we house-sitted for the month of June. It was nice to have a little more time to ourselves before moving in with my parents. The house had a pool, which we took full advantage of. It was so nice to be able [...]
