I wandered into Taste Bottle Shop today and am kicking myself for not doing it sooner. It is in the same shopping center as Dick’s and Chick-fil-A, right next door to Piece of Cake and I’m pretty sure I’m only buying my alcohol there from now on.… Read More »

He’s so amazing.  He invited me and our parents to take this reward trip with him!  … Read More »
