Wedding Time

I was invited to about six weddings this summer. Most of them I can’t attend, as they are out of state (like…Nebraska…now if it was Hawaii, maybe I’d consider it. Hehe!) or are occurring when I’m out of town. However, my sister got married a week ago and not only was I there in the state of Delaware (which I actually found to enjoy more than I was expecting- mostly due to the ocean I am sure!) but I was the maid of honor.

Now, I am not the maid of honor type. I hate attention, do not normally enjoy parties, and have been called an extroverted introvert, if there is such a thing. I had to walk down the aisle by myself, and I’m pretty sure I looked like I was frowning. Oh well. 262309_1895373979305_1090230269_31961299_6142716_n (2)
After the wedding, walking out. Smiling because thankfully I know my duties are over. Finally. Yay!

So, some snapshots from the day Smile My best friend Stevie came as my “date” from about 4 hours away which was awesomely fun. I also enjoyed hanging out with extended family members- didn’t really feel like I got enough time with them!

All the “kids” in my family. Since the youngest is now 11, I’m not sure about the kid thing Winking smile
