September is shaping up to be a busy month at our local Chick-fil-A! Chick-fil-A is a restaurant I love, both its food, its excellent customer service, and its values. If you do too, and if you live in Fort Wayne, Indiana, keep reading. Our Frosted Daddy Daughter Date Night is Monday, September 22 from 5-8PM. […]

Post may contain affiliate links. One year ago. Remember? Prince George was born July 22, 2013, putting an end to the “great Kate wait.” It’s hard to remember now, but we were all feverishly waiting for the royal baby’s arrival, which was rumored to be July 11.
