Thank You Facebook

Mias WeddingI didn't get Facebook for like a long time but once I figured out the drill the first person I thought to look for was my old roomate Maria.  That was about a year and a half ago.  The first time we hung out was a few weeks after Lucy was born.  We went to visit Marjie and got to meet Maria's boyfriend Chris.  And I loved Chris right away.  LOVED HIM!  After they left, I told Arnold "ohmygoshilovehimsomemuchtheyaretotallygonnagetmarried".  And guess what, they did!  Last weekend I was lucky enough to attend their wedding with all four of my college roomates.  It was amazing to be able to accompany her through such an important life passage and to see that no matter how much time passes so many things stay the same.  Mia still wrinkles her nose while she laughs, keeps her cool under pressure and loves to dance. Her wedding was beautiful, simple and fun with the reception a large, happy party in her Aunt's backyard. Out of everything though, my favorite memory is watching Mia dancing with Chris' young nieces under a lemon tree.  As the little girls twirled and giggled they fawned over Mia with adoring eyes.  Among adults Mia is a tiny person but for those little girls, she was a magical fairy princess, glowing with joy and love.
