It’s really not often I get to have couples that have known each other since they were kids, growing up in the same circles, and then, later on, turned their friendship into something more! George and Christy have been friends since they were six since their parents were both in the Greek church together. They […]

My kids call him Uncle Chris and his daughter their cousin, even though they’re technically family by marriage since his brother is married to my sister.
