Prince Harry and Meghan Markle – Royal Wedding Part 1

In 2011, pre-motherhood, I was happy to stay up all night to watch Kate and William’s royal wedding.  The wedding of Harry and Meghan Markle on the other hand…well, I have a three year old, so sleep is pretty precious.  I knew what I had to do: DVR the event that is the Superbowl of … Continue reading Prince Harry and Meghan Markle – Royal Wedding Part 1
