Will and Morgan had our first date May 25, 2019 and have been together ever since. They were long distance because of his work. It lasted only 3 months in and made them even closer. Once Will returned to AZ, COVID hit about 2 months later and they quarantined together so they could see each […]
Last month I met Stew, Saori and their dog Timber (who had a the cutest special collar) in Sedona. We hiked at sunrise so we could have the park to ourselves. Sedona is one of Saori’s favorite places. Stew is a geologist from New Zealand and Saori a RN from Japan but they are located […]
