Happy Birthday Keira-Anne

Comments 1 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Four years ago I met Keira-Anne through a mutual friend and it wasn’t until about a year later that we sparked up a friendship of our own. We didn’t know each other had a blog and our first play-date was a trip out to the Kwik-E-Mart in Coquitlam. Little did either of us realize that […]
