SO, I FINALLY get to tell everyone the giant secret I’ve been keeping for a WEEK!
Last weekend Stephen Bardin and I discovered that we were more excited and emotionally involved in the Ref 74 Gays Can Be Called Married By Law Thing. Many things have developed however, I surprised my hubby with something really big.
I asked his brother, Ronnie Bardin to see about any family being able to come for t he wedding. After some deliberation, he and their sister JoEllen decided to come. Others wanted to but for various reasons could not, so these two are the family delegates. WOOT!
It was awesome.
BIG Thanks to Ronnie, his wife Nancy Bardin (for letting him fly up here on short notice), and JoEllen for being game for such a big deal surprise in less than a weeks notice. 🙂
REAL BIG thanks to the rest of the dinner party for knowing that our potluck would have two extra unannounced guests, and delivering an EXCELLENT meal for all of us to enjoy. It was the exact kind of holiday dinner with friends I love. Thank you for being game to allow my secret game run unhindered and enjoying the outcome. Those folks are: Eric Johnson, Phil Cash, David May, Aster Max, Rob Jones, Alex Knight, and Doug Campbell.
A big lesson learned: Be game for big fun. And plan ahead. And be ok with best laid plans being suddenly improved upon without your input. 🙂
