I never thought I could love a stranger….and then there was Alysia Harris… alysiasache: In my least confident moments, I believe shadows are meant to be our playmates. I know there are many a bride who wove her wedding dress with cobwebs, turned her tears to crisp champagne to water her guests and her hopes that things won’t always be this way.
