Weddings


So three of my dearest friends are getting married this summer. Two of them I know personally, another is Carrie from Sex and the City. Call me a sap, but just looking at the above pictures makes me emotional. Carrie, who I've been with through SIX YEARS of heartache and laughter, one cosmopolitan after another. I've never felt this type of connection with TELEVISION characters, and when I think about it, I feel pretty silly. But these are women I relate to, who so many women relate to. They inspire confidence, confide their deepest secrets, provide an outlet for emotions. I just can't wait to see this movie, and I hope all these women have a happy ending!
I'm equally excited for the weddings of my real life friends. My friend Annabelle, who I have known for 9 years, is getting married in Portland in July. My friend Abby, who I've known for 13 years, is getting married at the Salish in August. I am so happy these women have met the man of their dreams, and I'm proud to be a bridesmaid in both weddings.
Now, if only I could stand alongside Carrie when she marries Mr. Big.

So what about you Kristin? Are you next?

Always a bridesmaid never a bride.

Just kidding! I'll be next for sure.

I saw the movie. That's all I'm going to say.

I can't wait for us to get married! It will be so much fun!

I know what you mean. Jesse doesn't get it (not many men do), but when these characters have been with you, and resonate so much of women's reality, you can't help but feel so connected, as if you are part of their lives and vice versa. I loved the movie!
