Smile

Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing. -Mother Teresa
For the last several months, we have been working on a project referred to as "local heroes," whereby all subjects live, work, visit (or are just passing through) the town of Villa Park IL. We hope to have a gallery showing someday including a few of these works. Enjoy!

Right at the front door (after waiting in a long line), his turn is next for paczkis.
