it's early july, and i think we've been to five weddings so far this summer. and what i love is that each wedding has its moment, the part that you won't forget. i think at kelli's it was when they said their vows, so very choked up, and seeing kelli's face when they were pronounced husband and wife (she just lit up!) and then at the reception of course it would have to be watching her dance to n'sync. :-) (okay and i will always think of cake when i think of kelli's wedding, since it was just to die for and through some finnagling i got to try five different flavors. one of the definite perks of having a nice round little pregnant belly - no one wants to deny you food.) :-)
so anyway, i am curious: what was your favorite part of your wedding? and your reception?

I was telling my mom the basic plot over breakfast and in the car, and by the time we were headed home we were both crying... And not only is it a beautiful story, it is set against the most amazing backdrop of the past 30-some years in Afghanistan and is worth a read if only just for that. (Should I tell you what happens in it? Should I?) This is from Wikepedia:
The Kite Runner tells the story of Amir, a well-to-do Pashtun boy from the Wazir Akbar Khan district of Kabul, who is haunted by the guilt of betraying his childhood friend Hassan, the son of his father's Hazara servant. The story is set against a backdrop of tumultuous events, from the fall of the monarchy in Afghanistan through the Soviet invasion, the mass exodus of refugees to Pakistan and the United States, and the Taliban regime.
Sounds so intriguing, right?
Okay. So: Have you read anything good lately?
