Good Times

Oh, how I love my friends. They are one of my greatest blessings in life, and it was so good to see so many of them in one place this weekend. We were all gathered for Dai and Andrew's fabulous wedding weekend, and it was just that... fabulous!

The weekend started on Friday afternoon with a Bridesmaid Luncheon at Betty Jane France's magnificent home. Mrs. France is the widow of the NASCAR founder, Bill France. I have seriously never been (and probably never will be again) in such an amazing home, and I had to keep reminding myself that this was someone's house.

Check out this place! GORGEOUS!

That evening, we had an amazing rehearsal dinner. It was honestly the best rehearsal dinner food I've ever had, and everyone else agreed. Seafood buffet... crab claws, oysters, shrimp, mahi mahi... YUM. We CHOWED.

After not a lot of sleep at all (long story, not blogworthy), we had the wedding day! Meg, Jenn and I were up early and went to get breakfast and spent some time on the balcony looking at the beach and talking. We laughed at how we never would have thought when we all met 10 years ago that we'd be sitting here at the fourth wedding for one of our crew, talking and laughing about our husbands. I am so thankful that these girls came into my life, because they are truly lifelong friends.

The wedding was great! It was part inside and part outside, and it was the perfect day and evening to be outside. The band and dancing were outside, and once we got on the dance floor, we were all plenty warm. :) My feet were absolutely killing me the next morning, even though the heels came off as soon as we were announced at the reception. You know when you get up in the morning and your feet hit the floor and pain shoots up your legs? Yeah, that's what it felt like. So worth it though.

The next morning we had brunch with the ol' ball coach. No big deal.

The End (for now).
