“If love is the treasure, laughter is the key.” – Yakov Smirnoff I had the chance to work with a very giggly couple and I had such a great time finding ways to get them to crack up but also loosen up to share their love with the world. We walked around Villers Abbey againContinue reading “Laughter in the Abbey”
