rerun season in SBD land

I miss SBD so I want to write one. But honestly, I'm going through a reread-fest. It feels right and I wonder if that's because of the way I was raised.

The prompt and photo I picked: free story, yup. STORY PROMPT: (written by Urbanista, a goodreads member) I must have been on a new papa high! Whatever made me think I could prepare a gourmet christening dinner for our new baby girl? I hope he comes back with the christening cake soon--why i
