But before I do so, I want to express my sorrow over the death of Robin Williams. Depression and other mental illnesses are not something we as society should brush aside, but I feel as if we make jokes about them and take it lightly and that needs to change. These are diseases as much as diabetes or heart disease or cancer. Nobody chooses to have a mental illness, and when people I see people tweeting or hear them saying that suicide is a selfish act I want to scream at them. How dare they judge someone solely based on one final, desperate act, a decision that person made in a moment in which they were likely unable to think clearly. As a person who deals with depression and anxiety on a daily basis, I know how debilitating it can be. It's sad how many people out there are probably hiding behind a smile. Robin Williams made so many people laugh, and I am so sad and so sorry to see him go.

Well as I mentioned the other day, we were lucky enough to head up to the lake for a long weekend for some relaxation and recovery. I even used my new camera a bit! I took a billion pics, but I won't overload you.
Hmm, let's see. Ooo the wedding. Well you already know we booked our venue and photographer, but we booked our DJ last weekend too, woop! Also, we plan to meet with a travel agent next month about where to honeymoon! Any suggestions?
My dad's side of the family was in town last weekend, I finally got out of the house, and we all went to an Orioles game! They were playing the Cardinals, my Pee Pop's favorite, so it was funny since he wore Cardinals gear while we were decked out in our black and orange. The Os blew the Cardinals out of the water that day though, poor Pee Pop.

We have a super busy next month. This weekend is my good friend's wedding, which I am a bridesmaid in. The weekend after is my birthday. I don't even know what I want to do yet, any ideas? Seriously, help! Then, Brian's cousin is getting married in San Diego the weekend after that. Then we finally get a free weekend, but oh wait, the weekend after that is another wedding, this time in Maine! I am excited about the next month, but I'm exhausted just thinking about it all, to be honest, especially after my sucky last month.
Lastly, Brian and I have been having "strategy meetings." For what? you ask. Can't say right now, sorry, but I will tell you guys in the next 2-6 weeks, promise!!
