Gift Ideas for the Bride-to-Be

Palace of Fine Arts Engagement

It feels like yesterday I was celebrating our engagement, and preparing for our wedding day. Among all the love that was showered upon us during our engagement there were a handful of things I received that were incredibly useful, and I find myself gifting these items time and time again.

My Nonno always said you have to live for today, but pay for tomorrow. I decided to just live for today, which is why 2017 will be a year of budgeting and adulting. *le sigh*
