Before we go any further there are a few things that I need to tell you about myself and how these things will be impacting my wedding: I am DEATHLY allergic to all milk and milk products.     No, I am not lactose intolerant. Yes, I literally can die. It’s like the peanut allergy…only […]

Huzzah! The long awaited engagement pictures are here! (Delayed totally by my fault, because I neglected to give the photographer our new address..oops.) Our photographer was Maria Hall of IQFoto.
