The wedding was absolutely lovely. I am sure it was the day that the bride and groom always dreamed of. I was able to stand up and support the couple with not only 8 other bridesmaids, but also Sophia as a flower girl and my husband who was not only a groomsman, but also officiated it!
The ride? Not so much fun. We had some pockets of fun on the way. We got to stop and visit family in Virginia, and have some laughs, but a combined 43 hours in the car? I would not recommend that to anyone… ever. No matter how roomy the car is, or how optimistic and patient the passengers are, it is a LOT of family togetherness. Let’s just say we started off singing along to Billy Joel’s Greatest Hits CD, and laughing as we messed up lyrics and remembered stories. On the way back, we were all pretty much scowling and ready to jump out the window on I-95
One of the highlights of the trip was seeing a “Mad Lib” type card I made up for the bride and groom be filled out by the guests. It is not often that you get to see your product “out there” being used. It was a lot of fun.
I have to say, I have so many ideas going through my mind lately, I just need to find the time to sit down and work on them. I am hoping that the event I will be working at next month, will be the fire I need to be lit under me to get moving. It’s just so easy when you are with a (gasp!) 11 3/4 month old during the day to just become a vegetable at night!
I’ll figure it out though! Thanks for being patient with me, these past couple of weeks. I know I have been a bit quiet on HERE, but It was a lot of packing, prepping, driving, and decompressing – but I’m getting back on the wagon!
