Dreams Do Come True

  As I was heading down the highway, I looked back in the rearview mirror. I could see the wedding gown laying flat in the back of my SUV. I was driving to spend the weekend as bridesmaid, companion and helper to one of my best friends over her wedding weekend. I was alone in […]
