WIP Wed: Up to my elbows in Alligators!


First my 29th anniversary is this week, amazing my DH has survived intact, no knife wounds or bullet holes in either of us and we are still together. At 24 years old who would have guessed that he would be the one right decision I would make. He is still my sweetheart and I will love him forever :0)
