@Missy_Star:  Aww, that’s awful! 🙁 I really hope your FMIL has something for you!

My something new is a bunch of different things, something blue is my garter/engagement ring, something old is a cameo pin my dad gave me for Christmas when I was ten, and I’ve yet to find a something borrowed. My grandma has a necklace she said I could wear, but I really don’t want any other jewelry. Are you putting a sixpence in your shoe? I wasn’t going to, but my father is absolutely insisting, lol.
