Dancing Queen


IMG_20150517_115603Several months ago, Jenn came home and said I want to sign Grace up for a 2 year-old dance class at a local community center. It sounded like a decent idea and we were sure Grace would love it.

1,825 days of new adventures, some sleepless nights, but ultimately unforgettable life changing moments.
