I got to end my summer celebrating the marriage of one of my good friends. The wedding and reception were truly magical. The wedding brought together friends who, since university, have been scattered across the world. My very best friend flew in from the States and the night was perfect. The reception was at a beautiful vineyard and we all went out into the fields and drank and danced under the stars, you can’t ask for much more then that. I made several memories that night that I will always be able to look back on and smile.
The Dog definitely enjoyed having us to himself all day every day. He even decided that he really like the water after all and would run through the shallows as I swam every day.
