So many many great memories of staying with Nook and Dub during my summers growing up. Me being a city girl, it was always such an adventure and so much fun to be in the country, especially spending time with them. I loved them both dearly as they were such an important fond part of my childhood and beyond. Always together through the good and not so good times, and now for eternity.
