The shoes and other details
Well tonight is the night to pack and get ready to head off to Portland for the wedding. It will be a whirlwind trip, and sadly, no time to explore or contact anyone outside the family. We will attend a rehearsal dinner on Friday night, and on Saturday a late morning wedding followed by a traditional reception. There will a second Chinese style reception in the evening, held at the restaurant owned by the bride's family. I am sorry that I won't get to meet some of my cyber friends or go to any great art spots...maybe next trip. If I am lucky, I can glimpse some fall color on my way in from the airport.
Thanks Deb H for your story about the fallen jacket, I will be sure to double check that mine is on the hanger! I am so unused to wearing heels that I have been "practicing" walking around the house in them. What I think of as my "hippie girl" shoes (clogs, sandals, mocs) are more my usual speed. For this weekend's festivities, I finally found two great pair of fancy shoes at Nordstrom's. I am not above patronizing the bargain basement stores, but sadly just didn't find anything that would suit.
Sweet Anne is still with us. Jeff (the groom) is trying to arrange a "live internet" feed so she and her husband (his brother) can watch the wedding from her hospital room. My son Andy will be manning the camera, which is making him a little nervous, but I think he will be fine.
I'll be back to post in a few days.
