Totally 80's Trolley Party
Wednesday, August 4, 2010
Wow. Words can't even describe what an amazing time I had at our double birthday 80's trolley party. The pictures might look ridiculous, our costumes were borderline hideous and our photo booth was like something straight out of the eighties, but seriously, this party made me have a moment.
You know how everyone says that you should look around at your wedding and soak it all in? My experience this weekend was similar to that. Somehow, in the midst of 35 people crammed on a trolley, cruising down Lake Shore Drive with the windows open, beer splashing, stereo blasting "Livin' on a Prayer" I was able to have a moment. I looked around at all these people and was suddenly so grateful. Knowing they were here for us, to celebrate our birthday meant so much. And the planner in me was thrilled they were all having an excellent time. But most importantly, these people were completely carefree, totally enjoying the moment. Life is hard, you know? Daily routines are mundane, commutes are stressful, work is hectic. So it's great to have an excuse to dress like an idiot and let loose, don't ya think?
Thanks to everyone who participated!
P.S. That should be it for the personal posts for a while. All my big life events happen around the same time! Thanks for letting me share :)
