Current situation: ~3:00PM. A couple beers in. Laying down thinking about taking a power nap. Wife is getting ready for the wedding tonight. Best friend struggling to get up from the night before on the cot in the room. Baseball on TV. Most of my college friends within 100ft of me. I get to write right now. Does it get much better?

Maybe. I couldn’t think of a better moment right now though. I’ll take this any day of the week.

In a few minutes I have to get ready for the wedding. I will dawn a new suit – the first suit I’ve ever owned. Somehow I’ve made it all these years without ever buying my own suit.

Today’s an exciting day for my friends Brad and Lynsey. In just a few hours they will stand in front of all their friends and family and commit to love each other for the rest of their lives. It’s something I remember doing just a few years ago. And it all goes by so fast. It’s all a blur and you don’t fully comprehend everything for days or weeks later when you can finally start to decompress.

There will be so many memories tonight. So many by the bride and groom and so many by the guests attending. Speaking of that I need to put the laptop down and get back to making some new ones!
