Chelsea holds Gabriel often saying soon my baby won’t look so little when a tiny baby comes, “I am cherishing these days where he is my little one.”                 [Author: French la Vie]

I found a place that serves Moscow Mules which wouldn’t be a big deal except they had the famous copper cups. For some reason it adds to the flavor. The view of a sunrise from my couch through...
