Keep Portland betrothed
Hi all, I am headed to Portland, Oregon, today to attend — and officiate! — my older brother's wedding. As a result, I am taking the week off from Medialyte.
Thanks as always for reading, and I will be back next week.
If you want to follow along on my trip to Portland, you can catch me on Instagram here!
