Inspired by new blog friend Stacy of You Can't Take it With You, I thought i would share the images from the event that started us off on this journey. Mike and I both lived in Los Angeles for 5 or 6 years and we share groups of friends because we went to college together and were friends for a long time before we dated. This March we visited LA for the first time together since we moved home to Boston. We planned a big dinner at our favorite Mexican restaurant, El Cholo (let's be honest Mexican food on the East Coast just doesn't compare.) We had 14 of our dearest around us and the night was fabulous and memorable and a celebration as it was.

Mike has a tradition of making speaches at big dinners like these, usually after a few cocktails of course, finding a way to say something about everyone at the table with humor and sentimentality. When he stood up for his speech this time he was a little more nervous than usual, he stumbled over his words a bit, and said something along the lines of "...there is still something missing, and what is missing is that Kristy is not my wife." Apparently all of our friends were aware of the events because they had cameras at the ready and the documentation is something i cherish so much today that i can't imagine how valuable the images will become with time.
