Hi there, sorry I took so long to reply. I didn't even know there were questions here!

How about you?(less)

my recommended book would be The Black Prism by Brent Weeks! Thanks.…more

“Love is not a whim. Love is not a flower that fades with a few fleeting years. Love is a choice wedded to action, my husband, and I choose you, and I will choose you every day for the rest of my life.”
