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!
But we have good news! We will be going back in less than two weeks to celebrate Henry and Elena’s wedding! Hurray!
*Yes, I have changed the names of our friends, for their privacy.
