I say the same thing every month, but here we are...at the end of another one. I am sad to see this month go, as a lot of great things happened, but I'm even more excited for September because it's WEDDING MONTH. Just typing that gives me chills and brings tears to my eyes for all the excitement that's to come, but for now let's recap August.
