    1. Hi Jill! I agree- I just looove all of Ryan’s encouraging words, lol. I am working on getting a 2nd blog up that will be specifically for wedding projects and ideas, but figured it would probably be a good idea to give subscription options so no one has to receive emails on wedding stuff if they don’t want to ๐Ÿ™‚
