Well this story begins way before the wedding at a place I called home for 3 years...College. I spent the duration of my tertiary education living in dorms and experiencing life and study on a level I had never experienced before. My first year was full of well...firsts. Living with strangers, making new friends as an "adult", studying at university level, eating in a cafeteria and discovering who the hell I was in this world. By my second year those strangers had somehow become sisters, I had buckled down and was working my butt off to get good grades and I was learning key lessons in life that were leading me in a direction of self discovery I had never anticipated. By my third year the people who I new not a single fact about not too long ago were my every day companions and to my surprise, upon reflection, became people that felt as close as family. Somehow the word "friends" didn't seem to suffice when describing who these people were in my life.
That was just a tiny bit of information to try and put into context how much fun, love and memories are made and shared when I get to reunite with my college family at an event like this wedding. I graduated in December 2012 with not only a Bachelor in Education but a whole new kooky, passionate, talented, hilarious, beautifully diverse family. For me this was wedding was not only a beautiful celebration of love and union but a REunion of friends and family. So much fun in just two days. Here's how it went down...
