Mt. Magazine Wedding: Part 2

Wednesday Wedding Recap  
So Wednesday was the wedding day. It was again rainy and foggy. I will say that the rain and fog were beginning to be a bit oppressive feeling, but the wedding made up for that feeling. It was beautiful. The decorations were fitting for winter including three croque en bouche as the bride's cake and a bouche noel as the groom's cake. The guest gifts were either a snowflake cookie cutter or a snowflake wine stopper (we came home with one of each of course).

I figured that the best way to do the recap of the wedding was to do it mostly as photos:

Thursday
This morning we woke up to more fog, rain, and howling (literally) wind. We made it home around 1 pm and unloaded the car. The dogs were worn out thanks to my sister's kiddos. My dear friend Lindsey was in town and wanted to try to get together. She stopped by the house and we all headed out for a couple of drinks just to sit back, relax, and catch up. Lindsey is my friend who's husband recently passed after a year-long battle with pancreatic cancer. I say that, but only so my readers can know who I'm referring to not as something that defines her.

Our afternoon together was very special, tons of laughter, lots of remembering. Lindsey is like another sister to me. I must say, Jason was such a trooper and stuck it out listening to us gab and giggle. And trust me, we can be loud and totally obnoxious!
So the past few days have been great despite being sick, fog, rain, whatever. A dear friend married his best friend and I also got to visit with one of my dearest friends. I think the year is ending on a good note.
