Kyla dreamed of a beautiful Spring day to celebrate her engagement to Richard. While untraditionally gorgeous, the time we spent at Topsmead Sate Park in Litchfield, Connecticut was adorned by moody skies and graceful breeze. “You were the sunshine, baby, whenever you smiled But I call you Stormy today”   I’ll see you in Massachusetts […]
