Deflate – Soul Mate
By son of a son of a shula
Thursday Night 10/29/15 in Foxboro, the Dolphins mercilessly beating down the home team. It’s Week 8 of the season the 7th game of the season and the third for the returning Tom Brady who served a 4-game suspension as the result of the finding of the idiotically named – deflategate. Unable to find any offense against the onslaught of Ndamukong Suh and Cam Wake the Pats don’t look anything like the kings of the AFC East. The turnovers have been a huge problem for the pats so far this whole season.
I can’t take it anymore; I interrupt this Sonny Fantasy because I want to tell you guys about my daughter’s wedding and not talk about the stupid Patsies, I’m so sick of them. We have Suh, everything is different now, let’s see it play out on the field, ‘noum sayin’.
Last Saturday I gave away my oldest baby. She married the man she calls “the love of her life”, and we couldn’t be happier for them both. Family and friends all had a wonderful time and the reception was a great party.
The ceremony and the reception were held at the same place. There is a large porch, covered and with ceiling fans where we had the ceremony. The porch area was large enough to accommodate seating for the 150 guests with the chairs all set up in rows and a middle aisle, the aisle I walked my baby down. I gave her away and she was married in a short but sweet beautiful little ceremony.
The reception was inside after cocktails and some pictures. The reception started with dinner and toasts but it was the open bar that won the night. The D-jay was really good, the dance floor was packed the entire time beginning with the father/daughter dance.
My version of it anyway…
Last Saturday was an unbelievable experience for me. Is it pride, gratification, joy? I’m not quite sure, but it was a fulfilling and enriching night and the way I feel is difficult to explain but its nice, real nice. I suppose I hadn’t considered how impactful it was going to be and it’s now sinking in.
For over a year our lives were wedding this wedding that everything wedding and with all the planning and schedules and the this and the that it becomes easy to lose sight of why this is all happening to begin with. Two kids, I mean young adults, fell in love. After they fell in love they decided to make a life together and Saturday was a beautiful celebration of the start of Kristen and Ryan’s lives together.
Now here’s what a million dollars looks like:
