This past weekend I attended my cousin, Nick’s wedding. It was a beautiful,
very elegant, southern charm wedding. Thankfully, the weather wasn’t too hot and it was located in a beautiful venue. Downtown Atlanta was clean and full of positive energy. We explore the wonderful city while walking to so many different restaurants. I enjoyed
visiting with my family, some of whom I haven’t seen in a very long time. I find myself wanting to make memories as I do things now. I was happy to steal some time on Thursday with my dad, Mary, Anthony, and Brad to enjoy a nice dinner. My girlfriends Rebecca
and Michele, two funny mommies that have been on my podcast, recommended a steak restaurant called Bones in the Downtown Atlanta area and it didn’t disappoint. The service was incredible with the best steak we ate all week!
The wedding was a 3 day affair full of smiles, drinking, toasts, and
new families joining together! The views from the rehearsal dinner at the top of the Peachtree club was perfect! As I sat back and watched everything around me I reflected on my own life and where I am at this stage. There is a 20 year age difference between
nick andI, so I felt my age at this event. Weddings are a new beginning and I wondered if maybe divorcees could be looked at as a new beginning too, instead of closing a chapter of your life? You hope that you can find that special person that you can share
your life with and I think that is definitely something to celebrate. No one knows if it’s until “death do you part”, but I think we all go into it hoping for the best… During the wedding ceremony, I focus on Nick more than the bride since I remember him as
a baby. When the bride came down the aisle I focused on him and you could see the love he had for his bride Polly. He teared up the entire
time she walked down the aisle like she was walking in slow motion. When I finally turned and looked at her, she was all
smiles and looked as if she wanted to run to him. I always cry a little at weddings more so if it’s someone I’m close too. The thing about this wedding is once you strip back the fancy wedding gown, tux, and the beautiful venue at the Biltmore you have two
sweet, kind, and loving souls that are ready to start their life together as husband and wife. Congratulations to Nick and Polly, all my love from your cousin!
