I went to Vegas yesterday...
No - not for a crazy night out on the town... something a bit more refined. It was actually my cousin's wedding. A Jewish wedding actually - which was a new cultural experience for me. It was a beautiful ceremony and I thought ahead and managed to find some non-Christmas wrapping paper to wrap up my gift.
You know - with a present that beautifully wrapped it doesn't matter what's inside right? because we all know that nobody needs another toaster/cuttingboard/chip and dip/cake plate...
The wedding was held at a golf course (nobody got hit by a ball, don't worry)but as beautiful as the surroundings were, it was ALL upstaged by the flower girl.
The bride was beautiful too... but really - who can compete with that???
There was a guest at the next table that I never worked up the courage to go chat with. Okay - so maybe I was just enjoying my family so much that I couldn't stand it (hey, I don't see them often!) But any other day - this guy would have had my complete attention.
all that lace and frou-frou isn't the way I remembered her - but that look on her face? yeah - that's totally the smart as a whip, softball pitching, pizza sneaking through windows teenager that I love.
