Gift wrapped

A few years ago, my Mom and Dad in law proposed an idea. They asked if my husband and I wanted to talk. At first I thought maybe something was wrong, but there wasn’t. They wanted to run something by us and see how we felt about it. They presented us with the idea of … More Gift wrapped
