Does it make any sense at all then for a man of 60 to hook up with a woman of 30? Or vice versa? Logic would dictate against it; yet it happens all the time and many such relationships last for years.
While most people were ready to commit to TV shows and loved them no matter what they did, I was breaking up with TV shows like a serial dater on JDate. Arrested Development was the one show that did not disappoint.
Weddings and families. Depending on your family, the very thought may send you into a swoon of happiness or a mad dash for the Xanax. As a wedding photographer, I've seen both responses (and everything in between) played out on notoriously emotion-filled wedding days.
Daddy I want to say thank you for being the best dad I know I made you happy and at times I made you sad. Daddy you are the very best dad a girl could...
