Last week, I received a very beautiful and formal wedding invitation in the mail. I was filling out the RSVP card on Friday and saw that there was a line to write a request for a song to be played at the reception. The first thing that popped into my head was It feels inappropriate to write ‘Back That Ass Up’ on such a fancy invitation.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend! Mine has been pretty solid. I spent yesterday helping Eric pick out new glasses, which was quite a long ordeal but was actually really fun. (Fun fact: I was the eye wear editor when I worked at ELLE, so picking out glasses and sunglasses is totally my thang.) After our day of shopping, we came home and decided to quite drunk. It was a lovely Saturday!
As for reading material, I decided I’m going to start putting links to my non-Lover.ly freelance articles in my weekly link round-up each week. So today is the first day you have both my writing and other writing to read at your leisure.
