    Special to The Trimble Banner
    It may be common knowledge to many people, but I had never heard of a wedding barn, until I met Kelly Nichols. A new business in Milton has opened. Their mission is to provide a unique place for new budding love to tie the knot, in a barn. Before the grand tour my first thought was a rustic barn, dirt floors and a few tractors sitting around. However, the scene was quite the contrary. Instead the barn is decorated in a beautiful delicate manner to create a perfect country wedding.

  • My driving habits are in keeping with my approach to life; impulsive, distracted and a host of near misses. I don’t set out with the intention of wreaking havoc on the highways and byways of our fair Commonwealth. It just seems that my forays out into the big, bad world are destined for a mishap of one kind or another.

  • We’ve all heard the old saying, “If something is too good to be true, it probably is.” This saying continues to hold true for consumers who are constantly bombarded with products claiming to be cure-alls in areas ranging from germ protection to quick and extreme weight loss.
