Everyone who knows me, knows that coffee is my drink of choice. Not just for the great “pick-me-up” it gives me in the morning, but for the taste, the aroma, the colour, the texture… I love everything about coffee.

I do

On May 20th, 2017 I married my God-sent husband and best friend in a simple ceremony in my dad’s church.
