Hannah & David
Family (and then some) Brunch
The next day, David’s family hosted a delightful post-wedding brunch with the family and close out-of-town friends who hadn’t had to head out too early!
What a gorgeous couple these two are!
If their “impressed” faces are any indication, they’re perfect for each other.
And then it was time to say goodbye! 🙁 I knew wouldn’t see them again before they moved to Kansas (less than a month later!) but I will definitely go visit them in Wichita soon!
I, however – since even after all the festivities, it was still only Saturday afternoon – was in no particular rush to leave the area!
So, after a quick pitstop back at Willa’s, I took a little drive up to New Hampshire to visit my cousin Adria! I spent a delightful evening catching up with her and her kiddo, Freeman; meeting her boyfriend, Otis; playing a crazy card game called Star Fluxx (as seen on TableTop and eating a tasty dinner and generally geeking around a while!
I headed back and spent one last lovely night at Willa’s, packed up, and enjoyed a very tasty breakfast (complete with homemade latte, because the Worsfold family is awesome) and finally, rather reluctantly, left.
Of course, I had to stop at Hannah’s apartment, first, to drop of their wedding card/gift, because I am a dingbat and forgot to do so either of the previous two days!
And while I was there, I had to check out her beach, since I hadn’t yet, and wouldn’t get another chance before she moved away from it!
It’s a nice beach; I can see why she likes it! And lots of boats. I like boats. 🙂
Another unexpectedly ten-hour drive, lots of awkward traffic, several unintended detours due to the GPS having a mind of its own and insisting I should take 95, one really unpleasant rest stop (so crowded and icky I suddenly wasn’t hungry anymore), and one entirely alien-seeming and slightly terrifying orange thunderstorm later, I made it home!
Seriously, the pictures don’t do this thing justice. The sky was solid bright orange. It felt like I was on Mars. (Or maybe a Mars-like planet where it rains by the bathtubful.) I only dared reach for my camera towards the end of it, once the wind and rain had let up a bit – but people were still going about 30mph.
It was a fantastic wedding and an awesome trip to Massachusetts (and a reasonably pleasant visit to Mars).
I am soooooooooo happy for Hannah and David! And now that I’m done wrangling all those pictures and this very long blog post, I think I’ll go look up plane tickets to Kansas! 😀
