Our oldest son Ethan, his new wife Lindsey, and their adorable nine-month-old son Rory were with us in Florida for two-plus weeks of blissful and exuberant wedding festivities. We also had our oldest daughter, our son-in-law, and her two young children in the house. Three babies aged one and under, and a WEDDING! It was sublime and outrageous in the very best way. With so much family activity and growth, we had to book hotel rooms for most, and Bill and I had five-month-old William with us in our bedroom as our best little roomie.
It was a kind of celebration where each day had no beginning or end, sliding into the next.
Not even sure where to start to share, I might have to go with a few simple thoughts until my head is clear.
Weddings are life events, and the pure love and affection that shone between the bride and groom lit everyone in their orbit. A simple way to relay the abundant joy is to say that the dance floor was jammed with ALL the guests (even my husband!) and that the band did not stop. It was exceptional.
Thank you, Russ, Karen, and family, for all and every last thing that made magic happen.
