how crying over stained glass became the best part of my character

This is the Mucha window in St Vitus Cathedral in Prague Castle — a huge cathedral right in the middle of this amazing & stunning castle in Prague. I had the very good fortune to visit it while I was writing Daniel & Erik’s Super Fab Ultimate Wedding Checklist, and this particular window is the […]
