Sunday July 23rd, 2017 The thing that was most important to M was that this was entirely a surprise.

The next part of our trip was filled with relaxation and food! M and I were so excited to show his family our home.

M has started classes and after being in one hotel for 3 weeks, they became fully booked and we had to move to a new hotel. We believe the place was built for hobbits. There is a large… Read More ONE MONTH DOWN!
