Still Recovering

This past weekend I had the honor and privilege of attending the wedding of my best friend. It was a small intimate wedding in California. They had a ceremony at city hall in San Francisco, which is one of the nicest city halls I've seen. There was a great big rotunda and this grand staircase that made for a fantastic backdrop to the quick ceremony performed.

After we all headed up to Healdsburg in Sonoma County to celebrate for the weekend. The house was gorgeous... totally my dream house.

It had an amazing wrap around porch that you could just imagine sitting on and enjoying a lovely evening cocktail. There was also a pool and hot tub along with an enormous dining table outside, which is where we had the formal dinner on Friday night.

The wedding was small -in total 17 people and as intimate of a setting as it was and as much fun as I had with my friends there, I couldn't imagine having such a small wedding. Granted I had a much larger (240 person) wedding, but even then I couldn't imagine having my wedding without all those people. It would have been hard -but then again, it was a completely different wedding experience than my friend's.

Anyway, the weekend was a lot of fun. My best friend who got married has been my friend for over 12 years now and 2 other college friends of ours were there, one of whom I haven't seen since my wedding over 2 years ago.

On Sunday we drove back to San Francisco where Huge and I (and my other college friend) spent the day meandering around the city. We got to see the pier and wharf area, saw the seals, the painted ladies (where the Tanners from Full House lived) and other assorted San Francisco treats. Huge and I took the red eye home, but the flight back to Chicago is too short to be a real overnight flight so Monday was a bit of a disaster. I have come to appreciate all the sleep I can get, so I'm still recovering, but it was all worth it to see 1 of my favorite people get married (and his wife is just as lovely and lucky).

A case of the tireds

I am tired -but beyond that, I would even venture to say that I am exhausted... now I understand why celebrities get hospitalized for "exhaustion". This is ridiculous!

I'm so tired that all I can think about is how tired I am... sigh. Ok, my pity party is over. Back to work and trying to think about something other than how tired I am...
