#78: Fairview Place Anniversary

Just Cupcakes dessert was a special concoction, made with Smartmouth's new Citra Ale. Yum!

It's the beginning of year two for Fairview Place, which is incredibly hard to believe. This past year has been filled with some challenging times, some for the better, some for the worse, some for just some's sake. Here's a recap of what's happened the past 12 months.
