82 Days + Engagement Photos

Tuesday, July 15, 2014      16 comments

I got my engagement photos back yesterday. They look great. I still think I look a little lumpy in some, but I'm not going to post those. I've been terrible the past few weeks. I was going strong, and then hit a wall of fried food, booze... Read more
