I am soon headed to a “Destination Wedding”.
Can you tell how excited I am?
How many of you have vacationed at a “Destination Wedding” in foreign countries, unknown ports, mysterious locales?
My nephew and his fiance are getting married, come the end of January.
I am accompanying my parents to the wedding, a place which includes–I’m sure it includes–pelicans and dolphins and Spanish-speaking staff who will check us in with an “Hola! Como esta?” and I shall secretly melt inside because I adore the Spanish language, the language de espanol, the playas with golden sand, the gathering of loved ones, mi familia, wearing short sleeves in the middle of winter, temperatures near 80 degrees.
How soon can we go, por favor?
I am counting los dias. Uno, dos, tres…OK, the wedding is January 26th.
Prior to that I shall fly between the wings of a silver jet to Fort Myers Beach, Florida, to eat grouper with Mom and Dad before going on a “Kathy walk”–honest to goodness, that’s what my parents call it–near the bird sanctuary on the beach. I am driving them to the airport in Miami, following the siren-song of a GPS, even though I’ve never used a GPS and wonder if I remember how to drive in heavy traffic.
Prior to that, the long-range weather forecast lists “snow showers” every day in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan for ten days, except Sunday. We’re actually anticipating another Winter Storm Warning tonight through Friday.
That’s why dreaming of a “Destination Wedding” occupies this blogger’s thoughts.
Pardon me. Time for a walk. I must fit into a bathing suit again, soon!
Hasta la vista!
(P.S. I am not yet revealing the secret location of the Destination Wedding. Those of you who Don’t Know may guess. If you know, please keep your lips sealed. P.S.S. I am not even sure if the Destination Wedding has free Internet yet. It does have Internet. Whether it is free, has yet to be determined. I have sent an email to staff begging an answer. They have not yet replied. Even if they don’t have Free Internet, I shall bring the trusty Canon Rebel and photograph. Yes, I shall.)
Hey, do you want to see a photo someone sent me that I love, love, love? It kinda describes how I feel about this upcoming trip.
