I can't relate to the people who complain that they are at the age when everyone they know is getting married. I am at that age and I think it is THE BEST that every summer I can look forward to a few sacred unions and dance parties with people I love in the spirit of celebration.
Last weekend, I enjoyed Julie & Chris's bubble-filled, suspender-clad, bonfire, camp-out weddingfest up in rural Maine. There was a pie bar and Coyotes sung us to sleep! There were also ten golden retriever puppies to snuggle in the morning.
I made Julie & Chris some wedding thank-you cards as my gift and I think they turned out pretty cute for crustaceans. I thought lobsters would be appropriate since the wedding was in Maine and lobsters have a reputation for being long-run mates. Their claw bands/rings are printed in shimmery gold ink. I'm so glad I bought that tube of gold ink because I used it in my wedding cards and Ashley & Justin's too!
