They were a natural. They felt it deep in their bones. Without any hesitation, he carefully wrapped his arms around her and pulled her in tight and […]

Tersen + Jordan

Just two days prior to her birthday, an early surprise awaited. One that would change her life forever. From that moment forward – it would all change.
