wedding

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.
