Hi you guys! I’m so sorry this is such a late Shelve It today. I was a bridesmaid in my amazing friend Karmyn’s wedding yesterday. Today has been nothing but go, go, go. Despite the fact that I filmed this vlog on Thursday, YouTube decided to absolutely hate me today. I tried to be prepared and ready to go, but things just did not fall into place. iMovie was a beast to work with and apparently it and YouTube were at war with one another. Hopefully everything goes smoothly from here. Bah! (I swear this is not some excuse for drunken debauchery. We actually started classes today for Foster & Adoption Certification in addition to regular SundayÂ craziness. What a busy weekend it’s been!)
Here’s the only photograph I have of me from the wedding:
Thank you both so, so much! I am so undeserving of your generosity — I love you both! 🙂
