I know people talk about this feeling a lot when it comes to wedding activities, but it was truly amazing to walk into a room on Saturday afternoon and see my fiance's sister, my dad's aunt, and a friend I've known since fourth grade all in the same space.
I had a lovely time chatting with people and eating cupcakes and opening a giant pile of presents. Our apartment is busting at the seams. All afternoon, while Peter and I were making space for the new treasures, I kept saying things like, "Oh my gosh, this is from [cousin, aunt, bridesmaid, ect.]...isn't is fantastic?!"
Looking at my kitchen counter or dining room shelves, I see all these people I love. I know it's cheesy to talk about a toaster this way, but it's true.
P.S. These are my maybe-weddings shoes -- I gave them a test drive this weekend. They passed the comfort test, for sure.
