The Long Way Home

My friend Kris, whom I’ve known for almost 15 years, got married on May 7. It was a lovely wedding – simple and elegant, a grown-up affair that gave me the chance to wear one of my vintage lbd’s, drinking glass after glass of Chardonnay. Yet my inner trashiness surfaced as I hogged through plates of dumplings, invaded empty lounge areas for photos and cursed my awesome-looking heels as they tortured my feet. Events like weddings give me access to places I normally wouldn’t have the courage to just walk into for photo opportunities. In between the cocktail reception and dinner we ran around the lobby, then the tea room, rode the elevators to check out different floors. It was like stepping into the plot of the mystery novels I love so much when I need an escape.

The revolving door photos is showing off my new, natural hair color- “Cow spots”. That’s not a bad haircut, that’s a solid patch of grey. A few more are cropping up too.

But if you get blasted, who’s going to drive us home?

Love the photos, but even more, the use of the word “hogged”. Very well done.

Thanks, Kara! If my purse were larger, I would have taken some of those dumplings home with me.

I’m glad you invaded those empty spaces as it led to some super photos. You sound like me at weddings; I love an excuse to get dressed up and drink too much!

Thanks, Lizzie — I should have taken the elevator to the roof, now that I think of it, but the wine kind of slowed me down after a bit.
