Countdown to Father's Day ~ Cards

Just Thinking About My Hubby Puts a Smile on My Face!

Hubby and I Love Watching "Law & Order" on Sunday Mornings!

My husband works long days so when we can spend time together it so sweet! On Sunday mornings, my husband and I start our day with a cup of coffee and "Law & Order". Our favorite characters are with Lennie Briscoe and Rey Curtiz. It's our special time before he has to head out to work.
