Use the Force, Laura!

I have a confession to make. Friday I was depressed. Really depressed. And before bed, I told my husband that I just needed to see some of my friends from college. They are so kind, so loving, so FUNNY and strong. I could go on, but you get the idea. The last time that I saw some of them was in April 2003 when we threw a surprise one-year-after-the-wedding-shower/birthday party for another friend. They came to the New York Metro area from such exotic locales as Indiana, Pennsylvania and Chicago. And brought with them such intense LIFE.

And then I went through a series of computer crashes and new anti-spam software and a new PC and a new email server. And I lost all of my contact information, from phone numbers to email addresses. (I knew I should have put it in my actual Hallmark address book!)

I googled my dear, dear friend Laura and found, to my surprise, her wedding photos! Laura was married October 18, 2003. And if the pictures are any indication, she found someone truly worthy of her. Someone who can take as much joy in flying monkeys instead of tossing rice, someone who loves that she is so effervescent, so unique and so incredibly full of love: love of life, of color, of nature, of God... I am just so incredibly in awe of this woman, who likes the circus I am pretty sure. My one regret is that my communication lines were down, otherwise, I would have been right there in Chicago to present the bride with ruby slippers.

I love you Laura Scruggs! Congratulations!

(If I knew how, I would post the picture of their gorgeous Wizard of Oz wedding cake complete with yellow brick road, poppy field, Emerald City, and Dorothy and the Scarecrow on top. Take it from me, that cake below the Cowardly Lion pinata took my breath away--as did the photo of Murray wearing a funnel as a hat beside the cake)

By putting in her full name, and such, you made it possible for us to google her ourselves and look for that cake. And yup, that is a great cake. SOOOO cute.
