You know its August when: that special wedding date finally arrives
This last weekend we attended the much anticipated wedding of Eric and Kate, held in Ames, Iowa. Eric is the son of my long-time high school friend Jean Ann.
I believe this is the first wedding of any of my close friends. Now that we are in our 50's, I guess the timing is prime for the next generation to start getting married off.
This was a lovely, enjoyable wedding and from my perspective everything seemed to run smooth. Good times!
My biggest observation about myself was.... that it is getting harder and harder to make myself look presentable in public. Working at home and leading a very causal life, I found it challenging to find something decent to wear, and then try to get my hair and makeup to look good, all at the same time.
I'm getting discouraged working with the wrinkles on top of the oily summer skin. Greg on the other hand, looked dashing as usual, and he just wore his usual work clothes. Men make everything easier than women... well, most of the time!
PS: I did enjoy wearing my new "tiger" shoes! Jean Ann and I posed with our shoes. I guess at our age at least SHOES are something we still can get excited about. Our feet still look good!
