Evidently, I just couldn’t stay away. I can’t thank all of you enough for the wonderful, heart-felt and encouraging comments about my decision of quitting the blog. Every word and email I got from all you awesome people has helped me realize the good things about the blog when so many bad things are happening in the background. I simply couldn’t do the blog without all of you. On a lighter note, I will have some exciting news to share with you all this week and I can’t wait to tell you all about it!
So, I wanted to share the excitement of my weekend as one of my good friends from college got married yesterday! Her ceremony was simple and short and the party was ready to get started the second we walked into the reception area!
It was a fun night for sure and totally a different feeling to see one of my best friends get married. I’ve known Dana since I started college in 2003 and have gone on many trips and adventures with that girl over the years. And of course I’ve gotten to know her husband Corey over the years too and he is just the perfect fit for her. They are so much fun to hang out with and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for the two of them.
The ceremony was held outside in a courtyard type area just outside where the reception was going to be held.
I swear the whole thing took less than ten minutes and thank goodness because it was getting windy and chilly outside! We quickly headed inside for a cocktail type time where we took our silly pictures and had a few drinks before heading into the reception area.
They started off with a few speeches and then moved onto food where I was fortunate enough to have Dana look out for me and make sure that I got a nice vegan meal for dinner. It was a bulgar dish with a variety of vegetables and super super spicy! My mouth was on fire! But delicious none the less!
They did the traditional first dance, along with the father-daughter dance and the tune they picked was just perfect (although I can’t remember it off the top of my head right now. Too tired).
There were also lots of other photos taken throughout the night and of course lots of dancing at the end…oh the dancing. Haha, some of those parents were wild!! So fun(ny)!!!
Congratulations to you both Dana and Corey. I can’t wait to see where time takes the two of you and hope to spend some of those great moments together!!! I love you both!
