Big news: My son got married last week, and now I have a daughter-in-law. I have lucked out in this department.

The planned facility will contain eight family suites, communal and dining spaces, a fitness area, a relaxation space, a library, a backyard and a roof deck.

People who are regularly around flowers demonstrate a higher sense of life enjoyment and satisfaction. They are a fail-safe gift that everyone loves.
