    Кэти! Ты вышла замуж! Поздравляю тебя! Такое важное событие! С удовольствием посмотрела фотографии. У твоего мужа очень открытое лицо и вы с ним чем-то похожи)))). Мама твоя немного растеряна, а папа такой добродушный и радостный! Счастья вашей семье!!!!

  2. Didn’t get to listen yet, but I love your wedding photos! Love the red and white color scheme – your dress was gorgeous – very different! Looking forward to the 3pm live broadcast today!

  3. Katie, what beautiful pictures! You look lovely and hubby’s quite handsome. The red and white theme is so pretty – thanks for sharing and I look forward to listening to the podcast.

  4. Thank you for the nice long podcast. I’m on late shift today and promised myself that I would clean my bureau top and room before my Bee comes over. You kept me company the whole time; it was like having a friend sitting on my bed and visiting.

    The Gym pact sounds intriguing. You helped me get to My Fitness Pal and that’s been a big help in my journey.

    All the best.
