My husband Jim and I drove up to Chicago this past weekend to attend the much anticipated wedding of my good friend Dianne's oldest daughter, Emily,to a young Italian man named Simone. The couple met when Emily was studying in Italy for a year. After several years,and many late long distance calls later, Simome asked Emily's dad for her hand in marriage. (so traditional)
Simone and Emily
The weatherman had predicted snow of up to six inches... but we assumed (there is that word again) that they were wrong. We drove up to Chicago on Saturday morning and arrived at the hotel at about 12pm. Perfect weather, perfect timing. I was able to change my clothes and catch a breath before the 3:30 ceremony. After the ceremony we went back to the hotel for a little while and then on to the reception.
The picture below is a photo of Dianne and myself...... (My husband Jim is off to the side keeping time with the DJ.)
After such a wonderful day and evening, imagine my surprise when we woke the next morning to this beautiful sight. Yes, I said beautiful!!!!!!
