Jessie was a beautiful bride! She looked simply beautiful. Her dress was a sweetheart neckline with sparkles all over it. Her sister, Katie was a bridesmaid and also look so beautiful! I would love to tell you that I took a lot of pictures and can post them, but I can't. I was so caught up in the service that I forgot I had a camera. Yeah, wasn't that smart? No, not really, but considering I have memory problems with Fibro Fog and doing more than one thing at a time is not something I am good at, I am not surprised. Robin came with as Mike was ill. She took some pictures with her phone so hopefully she will post them. It was a lovely reception too. We stayed until about 9:30 when Robin started getting a bit tired. I was ready to go to because the dancing was starting and I usually leave about that time. I was getting a bit of a bad headache at that point too so it was a good time to leave. I saw Jessie and Katie's brother, Martin, as we left and told him to let her know it was a wonderful wedding and she and Katie looked beautiful. I did get to talk to Katie so that was good. I know Jessie knew I was there because she saw me at the church. She had both her mom and dad walk her down the aisle. That was really neat. It was simply a great day all around. It just was. I even broke down and put some makeup on, foundation, eye shadow, and all. Well as I was putting my eye shadow on, my brush broke. Yeah, that was not fun but I got what I needed on. Martin's girlfriend, Chelsea made all the cupcakes for the dessert table. Boy, the one I had was amazing! It was so good. She is an incredible baker. Martin is going to school to be a social worker, I had thought he was going for being a youth pastor, but I guess he changed his mind. I think he will make a great social worker. He plans to get his master's degree too. He said with social work it is a necessity. I am so proud of all three of them. Katie is working on her Nurses Administration degree, Martin is for social work, and Jessie is getting a masters in English. They all have grown up so well. They are such good people too.
I ran into a couple of former students' Moms there too. I actually expected that I would because I know they are friends of Jessie's parents. It was nice catching up with them. I knew a bit about the one mom because her daughter, Kelly Lynn is the teacher I loaned books to so she can look and figure out what she wants to do. She took a big pile home with her and I told her she could borrow them for about a month. Kelly was like, oh, I will only need them for about a week. I knew a bit better on that and I knew it would take a bit for her to go through them all. She is a brand new teacher who I also hope will take her students to Michigan Music Association Competition this winter. We shall see!
I am very tired now and my legs and feet hurt as I don't have a good pair of dress shoes. They hurt my feet but I didn't want to wear sneakers. Maybe I should get a pair of black sneakers so no one will know I am wearing sneakers instead of dress shoes. I also thought that maybe a pair of ballet slippers would work too. I don't know. I hope that by Christmas I will lose some weight and then maybe I can fit into an old pair of dress shoes. My feet need to lose weight too. I can only try.
I am going to get a book to read now while I relax before I head for bed. It was such a wonderful day. I had such a nice time at the wedding and the reception. It was simply beautiful.
I do hope your day was as beautiful as mine!
