Pretty nice sunset tonight. #nofilter #cloudporn (at Casa CorVarez)
Logged in to my Dropbox account to send a large folder to a coworker and found all our wedding photos. Including the ones I passed on uploading to social media the first time because I looked less than bridal.
But it’s been 2 years. I was a hot mess. that’s a bridesmaid physically trying to pry a champagne bottle out of my hand during the reception. I still have my bouquet in my hand.
I am a princess.
Outtakes of the best day ever!

A MUST READ!
Mom updated me on Dad’s Cancer today. The biopsy results show he has Bladder Cancer In Situ, meaning it is in the tissue and can’t be removed. It is considered a high-grade Cancer and if left untreated it will spread. Unfortunately because it is high-grade there are only two real treatments, Immunotherapy or Chemo. In a couple of weeks he will start Immunotherapy.
Here’s a little tidbit on what Immunotherapy entails, from Medscape,
“Currently, bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) is a live attenuated strain of Mycobacterium bovis and is the only agent approved by the US Food and Drug Administration as the primary therapy of carcinoma in situ (CIS; see image below) of the bladder. BCG supplanted cystectomy as the treatment of choice for CIS in the mid 1980s.BCG therapy also reduces the risk of recurrence and BCG therapy with ongoing maintenance therapy reduces the risk of progression in patients with high-grade nonmuscle invasive bladder cancer”.
Hopefully this is the only treatment he’ll need. As everyone knows, Chemotherapy is not an easy route to have to go. Thankfully Dad has always had a pretty hefty immune system, except for the Cancer, so I think he’ll respond well to the treatment. Still it’s a scary diagnosis and just as scary options.
