It was another very social day for this relatively anti-social girl.
The wedding took place at The Driftwood Resort, which is where my husband works, where I met my husband, and where my family has been vacationing since I was six years old. You could say I’m familiar with the place. My husband is a notary, and in the state of Florida a notary can officiate weddings. My husband works at a beachside resort and he is a notary, so he performs weddings semi-frequently. I do not go to all of them. I do not go to hardly any of them. This was the wedding of my husband’s boss’ niece, and somehow that made my appearance obligatory.
I spent the time as an observer, a people watcher, an outsider. It was lovely, aside from the extreme heat. It really is a beautiful venue…
I took a time-lapse video of the wedding party coming in. I was going to record the whole ceremony but my hand got sick of being in the same position for so long, so here’s what I got…
Silver Lining… I stepped outside of my normal routine. I observed an event from a different perspective than I normally would. I put a dress on, and very minimal makeup (due to the heat, I didn’t feel like having my face melt for all to see), and I played nice with strangers. Go me!
Hoping it will be a good week ahead!
