WEDDING MONOGRAMS | Wedding details gone wild! … Or at least a little overgrown. Also, I’m going to freeze my nips off tonight, but at least I’ll be eating cake.

So, it’s Monday peeps!  How about that?!  I know it’s not the custom but I’m pretty pumped about this whole Monday thing.  Let’s forget for a moment the fact that tonight involves having to brace the bitter cold that is NYC’s current weather pattern, and let’s also put aside the fact that this weather is [...]
