Friday I had the opportunity to go to a good friend's (Jimothy) wedding.
My "cousin", Daniel, picked me up at 7:30 and I had the pleasure of basically spending all day with him. We didn't have to be in D.C. until about 10:30 but Daniel didn't want to be late and he wanted to grab some grand breakfast somewhere. We were going to stop along the way, but the risk of being late was too great....we ending up eating at the Safeway by the Temple. I thought they would have breakfast selections since it was 9:30 in the morning, but they already had their chicken out...when in Rome...
We FINALLY got to eat. I was so tired and hungry. Aside from breakfast I hadn't eaten because Daniel didn't want to spoil his appetite for the fancy dinner. I got the chicken and it was very good (I usually don't like fancy chicken). Daniel said we could go after we got cake...so I couldn't help but laugh when cake took forever to get there! We finally left at 10:30 and had an hour and half drive still (hence the "swerving" Danielism).
The whole thing was so beautiful! I thought it was very well done and you could tell that they really love each other. It was a little had given my state of mind on Friday, to be at a wedding talking about love and finding the person you want to spend eternity with. It was also bittersweet because Jim is moving to Australia now and I kept reminding myself that Friday was the last time I'll probably ever see him. Jimothy has been such a good friend to me and we've had tons of fun together. I'm so happy that he has found the love of his life and she is so lucky to have such an amazing guy. I mean...he's moving to Australia for her! I'm wondering if I could get a guy to stay in Richmond, VA for me...lucky :P
Congratulations Jim and Emily!
