I've known the Galls for years. My husband grew up with Stacy and Mike and they are one of the funniest, happy families I've ever met. The first time I went over to their house Stacy had a chalkboard sign in the entry advertising "Fall!" and her home looked and smelled like the season. I was in college and it was the warmest, most welcoming place I'd set foot in since leaving home.
