Apologies for my absence, it has been a week since my last update! I will say three Hail Marys as penance. My excuses include the fact that we were out of town this past weekend in Florida with friends from KC. We haven't seen this group since we moved, so it was quite the celebratory occasion. It's taken me a few days to recover since I successfully pickled my liver, and am preparing to do so again this coming weekend. This weekend we're going to the wedding of a good friend. I love him and his betrothed and I could not be happier for the two of them. This is one of those weddings that I've been contemplating and I keep saying to myself, "Wow, I can't believe E is getting married." It seems very unreal, simply because E himself is somewhat of a character and never disappoints in the humor department. The wedding is sure to be unique and it will be great to be back home for a few days. Speaking of home, I consider myself to be one lucky broad as this fabulous group of women is throwing a party especially in my honor this weekend. I am humbled. What more could a girl ask for?
