Inception: Of Mercer

A few weeks ago, over goat cheese salads at L’express, I sat down with the dynamic duo behind OfMercer.com.  I immediately connected with Dorie and Emelyn, as we launched into conversations about weddings (Dorie’s getting married at the Museum of Natural History in a few months), how the blogging world has changed (drastically!), and of course, our love of Cornell (despite the fact that every bar …
