Curious enough?more who i met
Nancy 3.

She’s arranged them in collections: International Umbrella Covers, Very Serious Umbrella Covers, British Umbrella Covers. There is a collection of “Sexy Umbrella Covers” in the bathroom.

On a recent trip home, my Mom said, “You should try on my wedding dress!” This is normally a moment all bride-to-be’s dread, but I was surprised to see that I have the potential be a 70′s inspired peace-and-love bride.
