so, i’m philippa

Alex, Edith and Betsy.  We got married and had a mega family wedding and I can tell you, it really was the best bloody day ever!  It’s the only time that you have everyone who is close to your heart, all in one place, where you can squeeze them all so hard and tell them how much you love them.
