Monday Morning Update

I’m driving home to Virginia this morning and thought I’d give you a quick update on my weekend. I can’t manage more than that because it’s difficult to write on my iPad while bouncing along the New Jersey Turnpike at seventy miles per hour (don’t worry—hubby is doing the actual driving, but I have to keep my eyes on the road to make comments along the way).

Anyway, there is good news and bad news. The good news is that I did fit into my dress, and the bulges were mostly hidden behind the cloth napkin on my lap as I consumed more than my fair share of the goodies.

The bad news is that, after working so hard to fit into that dress, I found that all eyes were on the bride. Imagine that!

About Coming East

I am a writer, wife, mother, and grandmother who thinks you're never too old until you're dead. My inspiration is Grandma Moses who became a successful artist in her late 70's. If I don't do something pretty soon, though, I'll have to find someone older for inspiration.

    We were thinking of you at the wedding this weekend. Patty said “let’s check the blog” and there you were!. Glad it went well. Beautiful bride and can’t help noticing how proud Papa looks.

      Oh, my yes, Alan was such a proud papa. His daughter married such a wonderful young man from a lovely North Carolina family. We’re looking forward to seeing you both in another month!
