In case you haven’t heard by now, I’m getting married tomorrow! And for the next week, I will be away from the online world for my honeymoon. Because of a lot of last minute issues that arose, I was not able to do all the things I wanted to vacation proof my blog. So please, excuse my lack of replies via commenting and social networks. I will do my best to get back to everyone as soon as I return the first week of May. Plus, I have special plans for all my wedding photos, video, etc. that will be shared with everyone, probably around mid-May.
In the final part of my photo series based on shots I took at the Desert Botanical Gardens, I will be posting one of my favorite parts of the gardens – the butterfly pavilion.
I wish I could say I will have another post next week, but I believe the photo post and my Fetching Friday when I return may be it. I’ll do my best, but as of right now, it’s 10pm, the bouquets are not made yet, so needless to say, I probably won’t get much more done in the way of writing as I had hoped. But I have lots of great articles planned for May, so I’ll make up for it – promise.
This was a video I found at Mashable in an article about Facebook manners. I thought it was pretty amusing, and I hope you like it as well.
