You guys. I was trying to get a post together for today and I realized I was just tapped out. Just wiped out totally. Like I need to spend a day staring at the ceiling and drawing scribbles in my journal. And while I can’t pull *that* off, I can take a day off posting. And what I do here is honesty, so maybe I should try some of that.

I’m leaving you with this picture by Our Labor Of Love, which is pretty much why I write about weddings and what our wedding felt like to me, and what I need to go do.x

By Our Labor Of Love via The Flashdance (who is making them dance their faces off), with more on Rock ‘n Roll Bride

    Yes, but are they dancing their BOOBS off also? (that's my new definition of a kick-ass party.)
