Any Other Photo {Frances and Alan}

When I look at Frances’ choice for her Any Other Photo, I see strength, love and togetherness in the very act of being quiet. Which I suppose, when you break it down, is what a marriage is supposed to be about, except you rarely get a second in most marriages to notice it.  Frances and [...]
