I dug our wedding vows out of a dusty file folder today. It’s funny the memories that can come flooding back just looking at old 'paperwork.'

Who’s picking the movie?
Do you remember the Disney 'Frozen' movie craze? That time when little kids were singing the lyrics to "Let it Go" on every playground and inside every store, every single time you turned around?
