Day 240: August 30, 2014
Ben and Jesse’s wedding day.
The message of the day, which Annie shared with me through a personal anecdote, was this: Love is always good news.
Though I got a bit lonely without my partner being there, I had fun spending time with the girls. They are all so bright and full of energy. We helped the flower girls decorate their baskets. Ava got jealous that she didn’t have a basket, so I told her to decorate the high chair, and she enjoyed it. Great music was played over the speakers in the Zen-do. I ended the night by coloring at the kids’ table with an artist. My grandma got a little drunk which was fun. She got very excited about dessert.
The wedding was kind of a hippy-ish ceremony, but it was lovely. Annie was dressed in a robe from another culture and she played this fish drum while we walked to the meadow. We blew bubbles as the bride walked in. The vows were a secret, which I think is just wonderful. It is a private thing to be shared between two people in love. That’s how I want my wedding to be.
Day 239: August 29, 2014
My family and I drove up to Mendocino for my dad’s cousin’s wedding. I hadn’t been to my great auntie Anne’s place in 14 years and boy is it gorgeous. We got to see all three of my grandpa’s sisters, who are just lovely. I wish I could see them more often. I met the bride and groom for the first time (though I probably met Ben when we had our last family reunion.. I was 6 years old and I can’t remember much). We ate and had margaritas (mine made me super sleepy) and ended the night by listening to some music that people were playing, though the transitions were a bit sloppy. I was a little bored because there wasn’t really anyone in my age group at this event (everyone is either 10 years younger or 10 years older). But I noticed that my second cousin Taylor, who is 11, seemed bored as well, so I asked her to play Heads Up Charades with me. She is a sweetheart.
When we got back to the neighbor’s house, where we were staying, I found a scorpion in the house playing dead. I actually thought it was dead but my dad trapped it. I’ve never seen one before! So neat but scary as well.
Day 238: August 28, 2014
Today Andrew and I slept in super late and shared lots of cuddles. Around 2, I drove him to the train station, and we had to say goodbye until I see him again, either in 2 months or 4 months. When we got there I teared up a bunch, it was pretty difficult. I didn’t want to go home right away because I was a small mess and my mom had guests over, so I drove to Starbucks and got a green tea lemonade. That plus the music in my car helped me calm down a little bit. I didn’t cry too much, it was just looking at his face that did it. I wasn’t sad, really, because I had a great summer and got to see him tons (the only benefit for us being unemployed), but I was super emotional with the goodbye.
When I got home I had to talk to my mom’s guests (my grandma and her best friend with tons of accomplishments) and I packed a little more. I dyed my hair again too, by myself, with my mom telling me how to do the back. It turned out nice, and I am happy with it.
Day 237: August 27, 2014
Woke up next to my sweetheart, had a lazy morning that included bagels for breakfast, and the two of us went to the gas station and then drove to the park. We bought a couple sodas at Sun Valley and animal crackers, which Andrew and I played some games with. It was a beautiful day and the park was relaxing.
Later on in the day we picked up Renee and baked some delicious cookies. I made some snickerdoodles by myself that turned out PERFECT. My entire family was home, and we all ate dinner and played a round of 31. I was close to winning, but then Charlotte beat me. If I had played more aggressively I would have won. Oh well!
