The Happiest Place on Earth

by kristendom on December 4, 2012

This month, I will be participating yet again in a round of Reverb Broads, a blogging project that my good friend Kassie and I started a year ago. If you’re a blogger (or are thinking of becoming one), please join us! Otherwise, get ready to enjoy some random posts!

The first post comes from KateWhat is your favorite place in the world? What makes it so special?

The timing on this prompt couldn’t be better, as I have a perfect example of why my favorite place is my favorite place. This last weekend, Sean and I celebrated ten years of marriage with some of our closest friends and family. Some of these folks were at the first party ten years ago, some we’ve met since then. And although not everyone could make it, those that did helped to make the evening a memorable one.

I had the foresight to ask our good friend Joe to set up a camera in our living room for photo booth-like pictures. I think the photos in this post will prove the genius in that idea. Give your friends and family some wine punch, tasty cupcakes (courtesy of my younger sister, Keri – they were ridiculously delicious), and a photo booth, and it’s pure magic.

And because Aedan has been such an important part of our ten years, we couldn’t have a party without him and his friends. Apparently he was quite the entertainment. He regaled our guests with stories of his birth and travels from the planet of “Freeze Korea” with his twin brother Mikahl. Apparently they came to Earth for two reasons: 1) to learn English, and 2) because their planet exploded.

Rock It!

Kids

Tears

Among the many enjoyable entertainments of the evening was a rousing version of “Oh Holy Night” by our good friend Valdez, who had flown in from the Bahamas to join us. Luckily, he had shown up late enough for me to guilt him into it.

And then this happened:

 I seriously might have to set one of these up at every party we have from now on.

And still, despite all the photo-taking going on (I even have a full set of candids from Joe, too), Sean and I managed to get not a single picture of the two of us together. No, this isn’t typical of our marriage, but the fact that we have so many pictures of us with people we love is typical of us. I can’t imagine a better place to be.
