We have this natural chemistry, & we both know that it's a match. My favorite
When I first met with Chris & Greg in a cozy coffeehouse last November, it took only moments for me to feel the zsa-zsa-zsu. It's that special version of butterflies I get when I meet a couple I am truly meant to work with. Their idea of a good time involves a kegerator (engineered by the mechanically-gifted Greg, of course) full of their own special home brew. They're about hikes in
I met Adam & Kayla on a frigid Duluth day, a couple of weeks before Christmas at this wonderful cafe in Canal Park.
