I already love the holiday season, and in the winter of 2006, there was no better time (as far as Neil and I were concerned) to get engaged.

I’d been having a completely insane day, between the regular insanity of getting … Continue reading Best Co-workers Ever
We now return you to your regularly scheduled Happy. I kept telling myself that I didn’t want to get to this place, but it has happened. I am completely, totally and utterly obsessed with my wedding.
