my period came on saturday. i was prepared.
Jen and Sean's day was filled with all things good. The ceremony was beautiful. Jen was beautiful. There were happy tears all around. Lots of smiling. Lots of laughing. TONS of dancing. I think we all have blisters to prove it. Jen requested her dj play "no country music" at the reception. *GASP* I'd never torture her wedding post with such twangy tunes! :) I remember lots of movin' and shakin' on the dance floor to this song. It's happy. It's feel good. It's encouraging. We'll go with it.
A few big handfuls of memories to remember their wedding weekend...
Jen checking us in, Friday night...along with our friends, Mr. and Mrs. Champagne and Pinot Grigio
How many girls does it take to open a bottle of wine?!
The hairdresser requested our hair be washed and dried naturally the night before. This is me honoring her request.
When going through my things, I found this. Don't stick an uncovered lint brush in your bag. maxi pads, q-tips, a bag of cotton balls and some strands of hair...Awesome!
Jen, bright n' early...getting all dolled up
Cozy n' sweet outfits from Jen

The hairdresser worked wonders.

Wishing Jen and Sean many blessings in this next chapter of their lives.
Last night, Jen texted me a picture of the amazing view from their honeymoon, asked how we were doing and if I got my period. I didn't tell her on Saturday. That was not what the day was about.
She sent prayers our way, 10 virtual pina coladas and the words...
"when one door closes, another one opens"...
It got me teary...how thoughtful she was to think of us when they're on their honeymoon, when they should be too busy sippin' on drinks out of a coconut...
and how simple, yet meaningful those words are...
there are lyrics very similar in this song...
"maybe your reason why all the doors are closed
so you could open one that leads you to the perfect road"
It's all starting to make sense. And, in my upcoming posts, I will do my best to make sense.
Wishing everyone a Happy Tuesday!!
