About Sandy (And You)

Our Story

The reason I don’t say, “my story” is because I’m guessing your story and my story are a lot alike.

We know there is something greater to this life than just us.

We know friends and family that are loyal are worth more than gold.

We understand true love is willing to make sacrifices.

Those are the themes that are at the heart of all my stories.
