finally, the day we’ve been preparing for came, went and it was almost a blur. it happened so fast. i went to maryland to my brother’s self-hosted 25th wedding anniversary party, dinner at a hotel on saturday (maybe 200 people) and brunch at his house on sunday (around 50 people). it was formal, so i couldn’t just throw on anything and bought our dresses online from freaking china. the shipping was quick and i learn what a brokerage fee is. i’m not a fan of brokerage fees. overall i had a very nice time – i’m exhausted – even though i got lost on the way to the hotel, typical valerie. i’m sharing what photos i can below.
