    Brides Against Breast Cancer is an amazing charity that we’ve partnered with–they accept new and used gown donations, which they then send on roadshows across the country to sell to brides like you for an average price of $600! They also do “Run and Renew” 5K events as fundraisers, and every year, they raise around a million dollars for those impacted by cancer. Incredible, no? If they’ve got an upcoming event in your area, you should definitely check it out! PLUS, our very own Christen will be volunteering at the Jacksonville show, so definitely come and say hi!

You fumble around the cupboard grab some roast, a filter, and stick it in the machine as you flip the switch to "Awake". While you fumble for a cup, you hear the soothing percolating gurgle almost whispering, "No worries, we'll have you twitching with productivity soon." And you…
