Hello, Goodbye
July 10, 2012, 5:55 AM

I’m officially done with staging in Philadelphia! Everyone is amazing and I am exhausted, so this will be super brief. We just got back from dinner and are getting ready to leave at 2am… I’m pinching myself that the day is finally here!! I’ll update when I can from across the pond.

Love you all!
