My “Ring by Spring” Strategy

We all have that friend who is soon to be married and oh look now they’re having a baby, and there’s three more! While you’re sitting there like, “What the?! I swear we were just fighting over baby dolls last week, how’d you get a real one so fast?” We’ve seen it, experienced it, maybe…
