Very sad news this morning. Chris Cornell passed away last night at the age of 52. Growing up in the 90s his music was a huge part of my youth. From Soungarden to Audioslave to even the Casino Royale Bond theme, he was an amazing talent.
On my deathbed I will pray
To the gods and the angels
Like a pagan to anyone
Who will take me to heaven

I'm finally relaxing at home and getting ready for bed after a very long day. I worked late and then had to run some errands before I headed home. When I finally got home I realized I left the place cards for the wedding back at work. I could have gone back in to get them tomorrow or Friday but I wanted to get it over with so I took an Uber back to work and grabbed them. I'll sleep easier with one less task on the to-do list. Oddly enough I'm feeling less stressed than I was last week.

Tomorrow is my last day of work before the wedding. I took Thursday and Friday off to run errands and spend time with family and friends. We picked up our rings from the jeweler today. I'm really happy with them. I wish I could wear mine now but I'll be good and wait a few days.
"She lived with us for 56 years. She raised me and my siblings without pay. I was 11, a typical American kid, before I realized who she was."
Before I head to bed I wanted to share an incredible story I read on the Atlantic today, My Family's Slave. It's a long read but well written and worth the time.

I had my bachelorette party last night. It was a lot of fun and I can tell that my friends put a lot of planning into it. We started out at Fiona's with drinks and snacks and lots of temporary tattoos. Then we got on a party bus and headed out to dance and drink around the city. I woke up with a little bit of a hangover but once I ate and took a nap I felt much better. Now I'm just relaxing around the apartment debating if I want to watch Me Before You. I know it will make me cry so I'm debating if I'm in the mood for a sad movie.
Here's a picture on the party bus last night.
