The Devil’s in the Details

I don’t think I fully grasped that saying until three nights ago. Cue the cool effects and dreamyharp music… Oops, I thought I was in an episode of Saved by the Bell for a minute. Before  November I thought planning a wedding was the most fun thing that ever happened to me. That’s when things were simple.
