Anniversary

Yesterday we’ve celebrated the Anniversary of an important day in our life: the day we met. Cake, Champagne, wine, special meal, and dancing. It sounds perfect and it was. There is a post of the story of how we’ve met before on the blog. In a few words: in a train, many years ago. We […]
