Last night my husband and I attended the wedding of one of his childhood friends. Going into it, I knew I wouldn’t know many people (count ’em: 4… my husband, my mother-in-law, my brother-in-law, and, only slightly, the groom). But I was looking forward to the night out and hoping I would meet some fun people and enjoy the night.
The wedding was lovely — beautiful, heartfelt, poignant. I wish the bride and groom much happiness!
As it happened, we ended up sitting with some wonderful people and had a blast. Did you ever meet someone and just instantly connect? That was the case for me with Steph and Photoola, friends of the groom from Ohio. They were super nice, full of life, fun, and gorgeous (nice combination!)! I feel like I have known them forever, and only wish we lived closer. I hope our paths cross again in the future… and for now, at least there’s Facebook!
We had the best time dancing the night away. Let me remind you that my activity level this past year+ has been severely limited, so dancing like crazy for hours on end definitely wore me out. I fully expected to be sore this morning but wasn’t. It may just not have caught up with me, but by the end of the night, I was fading fast and my hips and knees were hurting! I think my physical therapist will be pleased… I definitely stretched out some muscles! (and, as the designated driver, I wasn’t even drinking!) 🙂
With my new amazing friends, Steph and Photoola:
