The week continued just like that. Every morning cool enough for a light sweater then by 10 am full on warm enough to go for a swim. Clear skies. No humidity. Heaven. We kept exploring the area including an ancient monastery where we hiked around (read: got lost) and ate one delicious meal after the next.
Of course, it all began with breakfast each morning in our beautiful B&B.
Then, on Friday night we were invited to the rehearsal dinner (there were 50 of us) and I have to say, that was one of my most favorite moments of the whole trip. I do lose sight of what an amazing family I have and how loving and kind they are. To be welcomed into such a vibrant, fun and brilliant tribe (that has its fair share of the kooky, crazy and ordinary to be sure) felt like coming home.
I never felt the truth more that that “home” is a feeling, a vibration.
I took no photos that night, but next day was Saturday and the wedding was on!
Kate had a fabulous pink dress and a white fascinator in her hair. I got my dress the day before I left Providence on a total whim and I have to say, I loved it. It doesn’t photograph well– but I loved it, got quite a few compliments and can we talk about COMFORTABLE? Oh dear lord, the one thing I hate about dressing up is being uncomfortable.
And? best of all– I wore it another bunch of times as a day dress in Paris.
Providence shopping for the win!
a demain, Elizabeth
*This month — 30 days — I am writing a letter to my dear friend Mindy because I happened on Mindy’s post where she honored me to my core — sharing that she reads my blog (my long, long neglected blog) and it inspired me to promise that for one full month — 30 days of September– I would write her a letter each, and every day. Let’s see how I do . . . 🙂
