Well guys, today is the day that Fabio’s sister Diane is getting married! (In Jamaica no less…)

It’s also my first time being a bridesmaid, which I’m so excited about!

The bridesmaids

I’m so lucky to have Diane in my life, and I’m so honored to be a part of her special day.

Ooh, that boot!

In addition to being Fabio’s older sister, Diane is someone I look up to both personally and professionally. She is a brilliant, kind, thoughtful, genuine, sweet, and funny person, and I’m so grateful to have her in my life.


Happy wedding day, Diane! I wish you and Alex many years of love and laughter!
