I am back for good ladies! I think I am finally caught up on sleep from this past weekend - my best friend monica's wedding was an absolute BLAST! I literally have hundreds of pictures to share but thought I would start with Instagram pictures - we haven't gotten the professional ones just quite yet but I will definitely share once I see them :)
I know I have been talking about the wedding nonstop but my best friend Monica married her college sweetheart Ben after 8 years together this past weekend. Her family is from India so the wedding was literally 5 days long. It was the most amazing and beautiful weekend of my life - I am so blessed to have the friends and family I do. I love you Mon and Ben! :)
