Well, well, well. Look at you, you gorgeous perfect human-ish creature! Welcome to your week. Here, I made some hot chocolate for us, so I hope you’ll sit with me for a second and enjoy these links. It’s a pretty good batch, I’ve gotta’ say.
Bride Pulls a Full Beyoncé to Put Her Love on Top
This will make you smile and cheer and probably spill your drink on yourself. It’s that good. I mean, like, wow. I don’t even really like weddings or marriage stories or romance generally or whatever and this totally killed me. I’m not OK. In a good way. Prepare to get your whole life.
Janessa Cox surprised her wife at their wedding reception with a three-part mash-up fully choreographed dance to Beyoncé’s “Diva,” “Upgrade My Love,” and “Love on Top” to symbolize the story of their relationship and also to make us all scream with unbridled joy. Her wife, Lanaya’s face, OMG. The wedding videographer camera work on the slow opening. The fact that when I say she choreographed a number, I mean she hired professional dancers and an award-winning choreographer (who has actually worked with Beyoncé) and practiced for three months. LOVE IS NOT A LIE!

We Are All The Rebel Cow
A rebel cow escaped her farm in Poland and is now living with a herd of wild bison. So far, she has been able to successfully find food and thrive in the wild. pic.twitter.com/4pYzS0qSTM

She escaped her pen and her fate at the slaughterhouse and this “reddish brown cow” joined a herd of wild bison, where she’s been finding food, traveling, and seems to be doing quite fine thanks much. This cow is defying both man and nature and she’s doing it for herself. Let her be an inspiration to us all. Amen.
This is a wonderful list of stuff! I have the Our Bible app installed on my phone. It’s interesting so far. I’m kind of torn about the whole Christianity…thing. I hope this helps.
Never has an ellipsis given me *so many feelings* all at once. Talk about a pregnant pause.
I believe our own @alarae is writing devotionals for the app! I’m not Christian, but I think it’s pretty cool!
Looking forward to future picture books of the little red cow who could.
OMG yes. The Little Reddish Brown Cow Who Could!
In the meantime, there’s a children’s chapter book from a couple years ago that’s based on another cow escapee called “Audrey (cow)” and it’s delightful.
You go, Red Cow! You can be anything you want to be!
Be free, Red Cow! BE FREE!!!
So I’m deeply emotionally invested in a cow now I guess
Same! 2018 is already a wild ride
I’m so glad we’re on this emotional journey together.
Well I also don’t always go for wedding/romance stuff but I believed you and watched that first video and now I’m crying sooooooo THANK YOU <3
BELIEVE! It’s so good!!! I’ve watched it three times just to remember that all in this world is not horrible. I love when the couple dances together at the end and you can tell they just love each other SO MUCH and then the wedding guests come onto the floor and you see all these people and (presumably) family celebrating them and it’s too much for my cold stone heart!
Wow, that wedding video is incredible and definitely confirms that love is not a lie. I bet Beyoncé sent them flowers.
I bet Beyonce was screaming when she watched this. I was.
I’m proud of this cow <3
Thank you for sharing the cow story < 3 A true inspiration
That cow is the first representative of my country in a while that makes my proud
