The man I will love forever, is plunging headlong into a new life, with the last woman in this town he should be with. Me? I’m pregnant – making … Continue reading A Thousand Years – Prologue
I miss you today. I miss you often. Some days hit a little different though. Today it's the sound of your voice and how I feel when you look at me - in that way you do - that I'm missing. The way you look at me always knocks me a little off center. Mostly … Continue reading I Miss You Today
