The past weekend, we attended yet another wedding out west – this time, for our dear friends Ross and Pam.
Much fun was had. We even got a very special mention at the reception, since apparently we were the ones to travel the farthest for this event.
We flew in on Friday evening, rented a car, and promptly drove to the hotel – only to not find it where the GPS said it should be. Turns out that the hotel not only renovated, but also changed locations – google to the rescue, and next time I’m writing down the address instead of trusting husband to put it in the GPS.
We spent as much time with the Vancouver crew as we could throughout the weekend, and had a great time. Thanks guys – it’s always such a pleasure!
You can see the rest of the (not so many, and not so great) photos from the wedding here. But hey – I always forget to take pictures when I’m having so much fun!
All the bags are now packed, but I’m still too excited to sleep. I should, given that the alarm is set for 5 hours from now, but… meh.
It will be 5 weeks before I can get to writing thank you notes. But for everyone who should be thanked for their contributions to our wedding, let me assure you that you will be getting a thank you note. Not because etiquette dictates that I write you one, but because I want to – I want to thank you for the gifts you gave us, of the material variety to be sure, but also the gifts of your time, your talents, and your friendship. To thank you properly, my goal is to tell every one of you a story about your gift, and how it’s affected us, or how we will use it in the future.
The wedding was a blast. Would I plan a wedding again? Absolutely. Were there lessons learned? To be sure! – even the hyper-organized Maria blanked on a few things. But we pulled it off. Every bit of it was fabulous from where we were sitting.
Is this too unclassy for a first picture from the wedding?
Oh well, you got it anyway. Dan in his element! Our incredible photographer also promised to have teasers up in a few weeks. If you guys check out his site you will probably see them before us.
On a trip note, my bag weighed in at just shy of 30 pounds. That means another 14 pounds of souvenir space for the way back.
Here’s what prompted this latest go at joining the blogging world:
A few days ago, I was going through our bookshelves, looking for a nicely-bound book to put the reading for our wedding into. Nobody wants to see the reader squinting and struggling to keep the sheets from flying away. I think fourteen “where was I”s later even the loveliest poem wouldn’t get any support from the audience.
We settled on nice leather-bound “book” that was actually my travel diary during my 4-month trip to Asia (blog (which contains excerpts from the real diary), pictures) 3 years ago. The tentative goal is to more or less keep up with this diary over the next few months, going over all the adventures I had.
