A media buzz.

Beautiful Birthday

Celebration music mix

Danced slow.

Entertained at Improv.

First sight of you.

Go for it.

Hello, hug kiss.

Invitation maker.

Joined PDQ.

Kisses at camp

Love, I do.

Musical joy, amen.

Notable calm.

Oh my angel

Promised to come back.

Queen's DJ.

Rekindle over tortellini.

Saturday at the beach.

Toboggan and eggnog

Understatement brief.

Voiced let it be.


XOs aren't academic.

Your taxi cab.

Zesty viva!
