I spent the days prior to the wedding watching youtube videos on...

Life lessons.

Life lessons.

I never really do written posts like these because I’m often hesitant about how people may take to it, but something in me just made me feel inclined. First of all, I want my devoted readers to know I love every single one of them. This post is dedicated to the personalities in my life...
