Go to the beach, climb up the side of a rocky cliff, the jump off of it into the ocean. And go!
Pretty view from my walk tonight, while I was listening to #ThisAmericanLife aka my favorite way to #exercise
This weekend, my beautiful friend Jen, married her person, Mike.
The wedding was incredibly beautiful.
And also..SO MUCH FUN!
We may not actually be related, but this was a family wedding!
I have known Jen since our very first day in preschool…her home was my second home, we grew up side by side: Montessori, Catholic grade school, Transferred to the public school in 6th Grade, HFHS & Pi Phi’s at Northwestern.
Her wedding was a chance to see old friends from every stage in our life..and her extended family who feel like an extension of my own….plus, of course the 3 tables filled with my (blood) relatives who wouldn’t miss the opportunity to witness this milestone.
Such happy reunions.
Such a happy union.
In his father of the bride speech, Mr. H. shared heartwarming stories and his favorite pieces of marriage advice over his 35(?) years with Mrs. H.
He was far more eloquent than this, but I wanted to document his sentiments, for they captured the spirit of this celebration!
- Sometimes it is more important to say “I appreciate you” than “I love you.” Say both, often.
- Discover your partner’s passions…and support those passions wholeheartedly (although, don’t tag along unless invited)
- Dine together once a week. It is amazing what can be solved while sitting across from each other, in an environment other than your own.
- You don’t have to think alike, but you have to think together.
- Flip your expectations into hopes. Expectations have inherent conditions that if not met leave you disappointed. To move from “expecting” to “hoping”, your attitude also shifts to one of gratitude.
I didn’t know so much love could fit into one little weekend.
Congrats Jen & Mike!
Beautiful advice to remember
“I lived a really wonderful life with this man and even after our divorce, it was incredible. We had a closer bond, probably because the effort was off and there was just a purity. We realized that we liked each other, and that’s very special.”- Priscilla Presley on her marriage with Elvis
