December 1, 2011


Now that one weight of news has occurred, here is another: on November 11th, my BFF and I decided to elope with only our parents present. Our original plan of having the wedding at our friends’ home in Meadows of Dan has been adjusted. Since our rings are on order, they will be blessed in […]
