REVISITING…

Ah, it is the wedding season!

One in NY in June and one in July in Northern California!

Love them!

And since I didn’t start this blog until after we were married…I decided to do a post on The HenderBalz Wedding Extravaganza!

Matter of fact, it was the day of the wedding when my oldest brother penned the phrase, “The HenderBalz!”
