We are back from... my sister's wedding! Highlights:
Getting to know my brother-in-law better;
Seeing phenomenal family friends, and okay family as well, that I don't get to see all that often;
THE BOY IN A TUX!!!! Pictures soon, I promise;
The Boy playing in Boston Commons including his first boat ride! The grip he had on the railing at the side of the boat for the 1st half of the ride was absolutely precious... and for Mommy, a relief even if we were going a whopping 1 nautical knot;
A gorgeous wedding and reception in a beautiful setting;
Watching my sister finally let go of all the planning and enjoy her hard work;
An absolutely brilliant wedding service and sermon meditation (quite subjective as I did that part);
Manis/pedis at a swank spa on Newbury Street;
My friend's absolute brilliant participation as she helped with The Boy and helped keep me in a good place as well.
It is both good to be home and also weird. Home is where the heart is and mine has not caught up with what my brain knows to be true. The Boy starts preschool tomorrow and I am looking forward to being in a set schedule rather than the chaos of August and there is PLENTY of 'catch -up' and 'right now' to be done.
For now, The Boy is reuniting with his toys (and putting none back, of course), I am reuniting with my blog friends through this post, and the cat is reuniting with my lap. I guess for now that is home enough.
