#JonasCan’tStopUs was truly the motto of my weekend. Despite a forecasted blizzard spinning us into an anxious oblivion and a travel ban literally stopping us in our tracks, 30 of my nearest and dearest ignored all warnings and arrived at my bridal shower anyway. And it was the best day yet of 2016.
Today, I’m feeling unbelievably grateful with how the weekend unfolded, and I’ll be spreading my good cheer in your direction with my list of fun events for the week.
