Turning forty isn’t about lamenting about the years gone by, nor about turning older and letting out a sigh. Forty is a beautiful age which you can use as a pedestal, to live life to the fullest and make it magical. Happy Birthday Jamie!
What we liked most was the excellent follow up to our questions by Cheryl and Jay. Overall we were very happy with the build experience. Great job by the entire team!
