Molly’s Wedding DayPosted: October 24, 2008
Today is Molly’s wedding day.
And, I’ve got to tell you, I haven’t looked forward to a wedding this much in a long time.
And, well, it’s Molly’s wedding. If I had a little sister, it would be her. Can’t really say it any other way than that. I remember the day she told me she was leaving our work for another job. My first question at the time? “Um, so, Molly, am I still invited to the wedding?”
Well, today is the wedding, and Renee and I are looking forward to helping her and Michael celebrate their unity.
It’s also my first Friday afternoon wedding, and I’ve gotta tell you, I need it. This has been an incredibly stressful time at work (more on that later), so Molly’s planning is going to be a pretty good thing as far as I’m concerned. The reception is at a fabulous place on the water and the same place where Elizabeth had her reception (and wedding).
Beautiful weather, beautiful place, amazing people to be with. Can’t really argue with that formula, can you?
And, Renee and I are having our first night away from the kids since Erin was born — i.e. almost a year and a half. So that’s a good thing, too. It’s sort of a mission, if you will, to remember and reflect on life before kids (did that really exist?). Grown up fun all around.
But, despite that, I’m sure we’ll still wake up tomorrow morning at 5 a.m. — even after having gone to bed just a few hours before.
The question is: what will we do? 😉
