Until in death, we do part.

  1. Soooo glad to see you here, Tracey! And with a blazing short, to boot. So much said in so few words. Glad you were nudged to write šŸ˜‰


  2. What a great opening line. And it just gets better. So much in those few words. She started out a victim but she’s grown tough and resolute and she’s taking charge of things.
