Chris has been asking me when I was set to depart Weddingland and now the day has come near. It's been two weeks since CJ's nuptials and I am just now starting to feel normal. I am still putting scissors and crafts and vases and little cheese knives back in their places as I find them, but I am close.
I now understand why weddings cost a but ton of money.
I have started saving for Chloe's even though, after this wedding, she could probably DIY her own in her sleep. I would like to spare her the need to, so she'll only have to want to.
It was hard work. It was fun work. I even think it was pretty and tasty work. Plus, there's nothing like the reward of a HAPPY COUPLE and the opportunity to dance ourselves delirious. If only I hadn't changed INTO the red boots. The ankle blisters are now hard scabs. Real pretty, I tell ya.
Here are just a few setting pictures I took of the reception, held at the home of William and Aurelia Drake. I don't have any of the ceremony because I was running around like a crazy person trying to finish things up. And I'll post more of people in the next Weddingland edition. Stay tuned.
