So many people have asked me how the wedding went. Was I happy? was I sad? was it weird? did I cry?
yes yes yes yes
In many ways I'm an adult -- I'm married, I have three kids, I live in a house, we pay our own bills, we drive cars that we purchased ourselves...
In other ways I'm still a kid. I still want to come home to the same family I had growing up. I still want to hear my parents laughing to David Letterman as I fall asleep. I still want the house I grew up in and the room in the basement with the John Lennon poster in the corner. I still want my mom to cook for me and I still want my dad on the couch when I walk through the door.
But life is full of change. My mom has found someone and she is happy. He loves her. They both needed a good change. Deserved a good change. I believe it will be a good change for all of us. It just takes time.
The couple looked stunning and the waffles were unbelievable. I think about them sometimes. The waffles I mean.
And our little beauty almost stole the show.
This picture reminds me that sad times are followed by good ones and that it's okay that life replaces death.
