Everyone else had the same idea, and downtown was packed. I loved the feeling of being a part of it all.
What made it even better was being there with friends. Jeff and Henry*. Something we love about Henry is that he always speaks with a smile in his voice. Elena* and me… We’ve been having fun talking wedding plans– they are getting married soon! And here are Amelia and Anna*. This was such a sweet pairing– they have five years age difference and don’t speak the same language, but their affection for each other has been instant and true!
*Yes, I have changed the names of our friends, for their privacy.
