- Wedding: January 2012
I lived in Japan for two years on a tiny little island in the middle of nowhere with only 3000 people, and I loved it. One of the main reasons I survived out there was because I met F, one of the locals. She and her husband adopted me, and hanging out with her in their photography studio is one of my fondest memories of Japan. I desperately wanted her to be a bridesmaid (and her two little girls to be the flower girls!), but since travel is expensive and F has never even been out of Japan before, I didn’t think she would actually make it in a million years. However, I just had this conversation with her:
F: I’m so excited about your wedding!
Me: You really think you’ll make it?
F: We’re making solid plans to. Anyway, DH is telling me he’s starving, so I’m off to lunch.
I still need to confirm with her when she gets back that it’s all of them coming, not just her alone, but… F IS COMING TO MY WEDDING!!! I officially have all six bridesmaids I wanted! I’m so happy I could cry. I can’t wait to see her and her family again. I can’t wait to show her around and watch her brain explode as she experiences all the new things a foreign country offers. I can’t wait to play with the kids again. I’m so excited to introduce her nerd husband to all my nerdy friends.
Other than the fact that I’m marrying my wonderful FI, I’m pretty sure that this is the best possible thing that could happen in the next year. I’m walking on clouds now.
Just wanted to share. 😀
