first virginia beach then back to south carolina then off to chicago a few days later.
nate and nicola, two of our good friends tied the knot on saturday and it was the most beautiful thing. i wept like a baby, mostly because they cried a lot and crying people make me cry. i didn't even cry at my own wedding. in fact, i laughed down the isle.
AND on the roadtrip up i turned 24!!
we stayed in a nice hotel to celebrate.
clean crisp hotel beds, bagels with cream cheese and coffee in the morning. it's the simple things :)
downtown chicago was exciting. we've driven by it a million times but never stopped because the traffic is insane. we walked by the WGNR radio building while they were interviewing some olympic swimmer dude. we don't have a clue who it was but by the large crowd forming outside i think he was a big deal.
we were hosted by a lovely family one night while we were there and they blessed us so much.
the wife turned out to be a doula who had all of her babies at home. we stayed up till midnight talking about things like tandem nursing and probiotics. and they had chickens. how perfect, right?
