On the dance floor at the wedding tonight, someone suggested that because so many fun things happened throughout the day, I would have to use bullet points in my post. And it’s true that so many great, fun things did happen from eating my dad’s biscuits and gravy to getting a manicure from my mom. From seeing two amazing people pledge their love to one another in front of their family and friends to booty popping with my brother-in-law.
However what I found most fun, and what will count as today’s activity, is that I spent the entire day in the company of people I dearly love. One or a few or all of the following people were with me at any given point today: my parents, my sister and her husband, the happy couple, other friends and of course, my husband.
As I sat to start writing tonight, it dawned on me that the above is totally true and totally amazing. I’m so lucky to have all these people in my life and to have spent the entire day in their company. Today’s festivities were full of love. It was a special event to be sure, and those are the times when we do and should come together. But I think I’ll make more of an effort to reserve full days for family and friends and no one or nothing else. It was a great reminder of how important it is to just be with the people you care about most.
