Join me in extending big congratulations to cabingirl on the birth of her little cabingirl! Fiona Claire arrived yesterday morning and everyone's doing great.
In light of the Obergefell v. Hodges ruling and the explosion of marriages, proposals, officiating proposals, I'm excited to hear about any mefites who are getting married or officiating! I've seen pictures all over twitter, but I'd love to share in the happiness this brings to our own little corner of the internet.
