We took a long weekend – leaving Thursday night for Kokomo, Indiana – for what would be a 3 day fiesta of wedding celebration and family. Scott’s brother, the youngest of the three siblings, got married in a Saturday afternoon ceremony that had me crying before his (beautiful!) lady walked down the aisle. Just watching him seat my mom-in-law got me choked up; him too.
After enough food (and beverage, of course) to keep us full and happy for days, we headed home on Sunday morning, only to spend the afternoon in a panic attack over the Penguins elimination (so lucky for you, we won’t be bringing that up again – until next year) and catching up on a week’s worth of bad television.
We’d been looking forward to the wedding since the question was popped last year, so there’s always a bit of disappointment when the too short visit comes and gos, and like it or not, you’re already setting your alarm clock for Monday morning. It was relaxing and fun – and many times, a riot! – to spend the days with family and friends we hadn’t seen since our I dos, and it was a bonus to make new friends, too. We’re so lucky to have the newest member in our family (and for me, another sister!), and as Scott would say – like he’s said before – we welcome them to the land of the hitched. It’s a fun, fun ride.
What were you up to?
