"& SHE'S gonna get maaaried"! "She" being the lovely lady pictured with me below:
I am so excited for Andrea, one of my best friends & one of the truly best people I know. She is one of the first friends I met when I moved to Chicago. We met at a mutual friends party (who none of us even talk to anymore!) & exchanged numbers to go shopping. We finally went shopping a few weeks later & have been best friends ever since. That was in October of 2003!
We have been through a lot together over the past 8 years. We've supported each other through the good times and the bad. Laughter, tears, births (not ours!), deaths, new boyfriends (& now husbands!), break-ups, new jobs, new homes, WEDDINGS; I am so blessed to call her friend. She is always in my corner & will rally with me until the end!
Andrea, I am so happy for you and Charlie. Who would have thought that the guy in the window of Belly's on your 30th birthday would turn out to be your HUSBAND?! Ahh, that lovely little thing called fate. "You know what this is? This is fate, Edward, that's what this is" :)
You are a beautiful bride & I know tears will be streaming down my cheeks when I see you come down that aisle. I am honored to stand up with you & celebrate this incredible sacrament. I love you!
