Week # 2 Lara and Andy’s wedding on Martha’s Vineyard…. amazing.

Feel very lucky that I got to be there the first time around, but feel even luckier about being a part of their wedding this time around. Was really beautiful to hear them say their vows surrounded by all their family and friends – plus, the party was ridic.

… Or, should I say, parties: this shit was a four day affair on the Vineyard, complete with hay ride, bonfire, burgers on the grill and beers on the beach. The four days was so good, because everyone got to know everyone. When the weekend ended, it was SAD. It felt like leaving summer camp (for really friendly alcoholics).  I need them to get started planning their vow renewal, STAT.

PS. The ceremony aspect of it went relatively smoothly (except when I lost my place in the notecards and had to flip through them 27 times.)  Pro tip: 4 Valiums makes you a superhero.

Yep, forrealz. Nick proposed and I said yes – how lucky am I?

This is how it happened:

When we were in Port Douglas with my parents, we got stuck in Cairns for an extra night before flying out, due to torrential rainfall. So, we checked into a hotel and found our way to a pub with a deck of cards, and got comfortable.

My parents had lunch with us and then left to wander around Cairns, but Nick and I parked ourselves and started playing rummy (yeah I know, we’re old.) Mom and Dad came back later, we had dinner and all sat around chatting. At some point in there, Nick asked my Dad’s permission, and my Dad said yes. Then Nick turned to me and asked me – much to all of our surprise – and I said yes, too! Then we had champagne!

And then we got cut off. THIS IS TRUE ROMANCE, PEOPLE – IT’S NOT ALWAYS PRETTY.

I mean seriously – could Nick and I have done it any other way?

So, we are tying the knot August 31, 2013. Can’t wait.
