today was RC’s bridal shower. she is getting married a few days after Christmas on Maui, and although i know it will be a beautiful and heartfelt event, ryan and i won’t be able to make it. luckily she and her soon-to-be husband J will be having a big reception in january in town so that friends and family can help them celebrate. RC is a good friend of mine, and she traveled with me back east for my wedding. it would not have been the same without her, and i’m glad to have the opportunity to help her celebrate her own special day.
it was an intimate group of women, a few that i had met before and many that i had not, and it was a lot of fun. there was storytelling and some honest sharing about marriage. it was interesting to hear different women speak about what they have learned in life, what has worked and what has not, and hearing the hope that each one of us has for a successful partnership.
and of course RC looked beautiful!
