Aurora was out for about five minutes then came back in tears because she didn't like getting wet. Bella spent another hour building snowmen...that girl is a true New Englander. Aurora...not so much.
The next day we drove to Boston to be with family and enjoyed a very international Thanksgiving meal. I forgot to take pictures but it was the most delicious Burmese food/ Chinese food/ Indian and your traditional turkey and stuffing. The day after Thanksgiving was my best friend, Jess's wedding and it was Thanksgiving food 2.0. I have to tell you I cried like a baby when she walked down the aisle. She looked absolutely beautiful and the wedding was elegant and simple and intimate. They got married in this cute little barn in Connecticut. It was truly a wonderful night. Jess and I have been friends since freshmen year of college. I remembered sitting at the cafeteria eating lunch and she just walked up to me and said, "You and I should be friends." She has always been there for me through life's ups and downs and I for her. I used to think soul mates were about men and falling in love with this idea of knight in shinning armor but I realized soul mates were people who see us for who we really are and accept us and love us no matter what. I am so lucky to have Jess as one of my soul mates.
Here is the beautiful bride and groom. I took the pictures with my phone and they all came out dark. : /
I ordered a dress for the wedding then when I got it, it fitted all wrong. Like a girl that I am, I literally went through my whole closet trying to find something to wear an hour before the wedding. I ended up wearing a tuxedo jumpsuit and a blazer. I thought Jess would appreciate my vintage cocktail hat.
So wonderful to be reunited with all of my college friends.
Here is my lovely date and I.
The girls were flower girls and let me tell you, they did not stop dancing until the end of the night.
What a magical night that was.
