A quick look says I haven't updated this journal since April, and a couple of things have changed since then. rosinavs and I got married. That was a big to-do, let me tell you. We had somewhere on the order of 200 guests for the ceremony, packing in the chairs we had rented. I think we used the available space pretty well, winding the procession through the patio stairs down from the balcony, running the buffet line through the Great Room (and thus keeping most of the food cleanup indoors next to the kitchen), using our beautiful woods for the backdrop of the ceremony, placing the tent village nearest to the houses of the people who ended up staying up the latest. The food was utterly fantastic. I know it sounds cheap to tell people that you're having a potluck, but we had so much more variety (and higher quality) of food.
It was so gratifying to have all of you there. It made the day so special.
