October Weddings and Anniversaries

Just yesterday I was talking on Twitter about the ways the APW community has grown (and grown and grown) in the past years. It’s been overwhelming (hello: 575 comments and counting on the most recent name change post) and amazing (see the same 575 comments). And I, for one, am profoundly grateful for it. So today I’m delighted to share with you October weddings and anniversaries, put together by our devoted columns editor Alyssa. I’d say that some of my very favorite people are in this post, but I say that every month. The truth is, some of my very favorite people in the world hang out on this blog, because I’m deeply blessed. And hey! I’m a bridesmaid in one of this month’s weddings (eeeeeee!) more on that later…

      We had the Sarah and Jon vs. Sarah and Jonathan in August on the same day, so I thought we had a Jo and Chris and Joanna and Chris…

      • Fixed! Evidence of my shame is eliminated… :-)
