Married the love of my life on October 19, 2018. We met at a roulette table in Vegas in December of 2013, did the LDR thing for 2 1/2 years and bought a dump of a house together near Pittsburgh where he is from in April 2016. I moved out from NJ a few months later and we've been fixing it up ever since and somehow managed to get engaged and have a wedding... 4 hours away in Maryland. Whew.

Happily married 🎉

To my fellow brides in the medical field who keep their nails short, how are you doing your nails for the big day? I almost never get my nails done, and just paint them myself when I need to. Thanks!
