I'm in an overly nostalgic mood this week coming off the Alaska trip. I am a planner and an organizer in my personal life but I think for the most part I do a good job of living in the now and taking in the big and the small moments that comprise a day's living. But sometimes...well....sometimes (like this morning, very loudly) my mind is reaching back into memories gone by and ones that I'm blessed to have as a part of my history. Fun, sentimental, the works kind of memories. Today's favorites are 5 of those ones :)
Abby's Bachelorette Bar Crawl. State College c. 2005. I get perma-grin looking at pics from that night. She was the first to get engaged and married of us 4. Now all of us are wed and little Eme Ward is getting excited to welcome baby Hollenbeck into the crew of wine weekend babies;)
Grandma & Grandpa Kertz's 50th wedding anniversary party. I love this memory and picture solely because of Grace's dramatic tearfest. haha. No, in all seriousness, I am so fortunate to have a set of grandparents who have seen a milestone like this in their marriage and family. My tough German grandfather's tears of happiness that night spoke louder than words.
Wexford ladies reunions. My high school galpals mean the world to me. This is us from our reunion trip in 2008. We thought we'd really "grown up" that year. I love naivete ;)
Dancing with my Dad on my wedding day. I'm such a sap:) I love everything about that moment with my Dad. With the girls and Mr. Pontiere singing "My Girl." It was as special as special can be.
Kristin's first visit to NYC. Let it be known there have been 6 visits since + her wedding. Those weekends with her in town go down as some of the most hilarious we've ever spent as friends. I mean, based on this picture, even Lee agrees :)
Sarah: one part of a family of THREE with my husband Lee and sweet girl Morgan, simply wanting to chronicle the path I'm on and the path that will come to be. For now it's NYC urban mamaville where everyday is a new adventure! (Actually, just getting to the post office is an adventure.)
