    There was a lot of furniture moving around upstairs at 2am at the last night. I kept tapping my husband’s arm last night, but he was too busy hiding under the blankets after we saw my phone charger disconnectall by itself and a little boy running around the room! What a lovely and unforgettable night at the Columns!
