A very, very, very long time ago, I met my dear friend, Shannon. She is actually the first person who introduced me to Starbucks, the one who fueled a lot of my writing creativity and one of my absolute favorite people in the whole world. She moved to Dallas about eight months after we met, but we stayed best friends even though we haven't lived in the same town for the last fourteen years (good gracious, we've been friends for a long time!). She's the first person outside family I told about Jon, she was a bridesmaid in my wedding and this past weekend, she got married!!
I just adore her and her whole family.
AND - she and her husband, Eric, are moving to Albuquerque!! I am so very excited, I can hardly stand it!!
We drove to Dallas Wednesday afternoon, got there very late that night and spent Thursday hanging out with my wonderful cousins and aunts and uncles. I love going to Dallas - I wish we made it there more often.
Friday, there was a tea in Shannon's honor that morning which was beautiful. I think I had better posture that day than ever in my life. Here are the bridesmaids with the beautiful bride-to-be at the tea!
The wedding was absolutely perfect, everything went flawlessly and Shannon and Eric are just adorable together.

I loved their reception! The dancing was so fun. At one point, the crowd turned into a big circle during one song and people were going out to dance in the middle.
Guess who went out there, danced a little jig and then did the splits, much to the applause of the masses??
My boy the entertainer. ;)
I love weddings! Apparently, my sweet boy does too.
