It’s becoming a running joke in my house that I’m becoming the main character from the movie, 27 Dresses.
Attending weddings is becoming my full time job.
I am now a pro at the cha-cha slide, an excellent judge of wedding cake, and smart enough to avoid crazy single ladies who desperately want the bouquet.
People keep telling me that it’s “just that time of life–” The time in my twenties that I’ll spend attending bridal showers and bachelorette parties and weddings–and I am beginning to realize how very right they are. This fall has been a whirlwind of wedding bliss and chaos. I have laughed, cried, attended more parties, and driven more miles than I can count. I’ve attended five weddings in seven weeks, stood as a bridesmaid in two, and this coming Saturday, I will get to stand again beside one of my dearest friends from college as she celebrates her union to her husband.
Although it’s been the busiest fall I’ve ever had, it has also been one of the most joyful. There really is no other moment like the one when a man and woman see each other as the bride walks down the aisle–as they stand amongst their families and friends and pledge to be faithful and true. I’ve been so blessed to be able to worship alongside each of these couples–for their unions truly have been worship to our creator. In song, word, deed, and celebration. I wish I could write more eloquently about each occasion–for they really are deserving of poetic description. In the midst of the chaos though, all I can do is note that September and October have been filled with friends, fun, and lots and lots of dancing. Here’s a peek into my world these days.
