the next level

This is where I was this weekend. My sister has put the last year of her life into planning her wedding. And I must say, it showed. It was beautiful and frantic and emotional and fun, all wrapped into one. It was supposed to be a dry (no booze, but tears are allowed, if not... Continue Reading →
