This summer my cousin Emma was married and me, my mom, and all my aunts [on my mom’s side] were able to go to the wedding. It got off to a bit of a bumpy start when my hour long flight was over an hour late. However, I had a great travel companion, Mary. We kept ourselves entertained until our plane showed up and convinced someone to trade seats so we could sit together and watch a movie on our way to Vegas [She’d never seen First Wives Club, can you believe it?].
Mom, Annie, Jan, Mary, Shelly, and I all stayed together in a rental we [and by we I mean Jan] found only five minutes from Phil and Shauna’s house.
My main contribution to the gathering was teaching everyone how to use snapchat filters:
Not everyone could make it, but it was so fun hanging out with everyone there. We chatted. We ate [Many chocolate cinnamon bears were sacrificed that weekend]. We wedding-prepped. We hot tubbed [Annie also may have convinced me to jump in the big pool with all my clothes on!!].
Both the ceremony and the reception were beautiful. [Happy] Tears may have been shed. It was a lovely weekend!
Cheers to Emma and Chad!
Currently: missing all these wonderful people and already thinking about Christmas!
