The people that I got to spend approximately 24 hours of my life with represented my youth...I know this because multiple adults put their hand about waist high and followed by saying "I remember when you were this big". I even said that to someone...surreal moment for sure(I am not old enough to have known people when they were ankle biters, anyways). These are the people who saw me grow up and are surprised at how gorgeous I turned out(maybe they weren't surprised, but I loved the compliments nonetheless), they have memories that I am glad that they remember, and they represent a youth that I forgot that I loved. As I met them this past holiday, I embraced them as an adult and was delighted to have great conversations and share in sooooo much laughter. When Terry asked my brother and I to escort the rest of the lingerers back to hotel I knew that this is was one celebration that would go down in the books as one of my favorites.
Soooooo, to end this blog I give a shout out to my new friends THE SEGINS, THE JOHNSONS, THE WALLACES, THE CROWTHERS and THE MACEAUS...thanks for the memories...whose getting married next, please invite me...I'll bring the white wine.
With many thanks,
