So I had the extreme pleasure of logging some travel miles this weekend, while visiting Philly for the amazingly beautiful and fantastically fun wedding of my friends Brian and Angela! I want to first wish them Congratulations once again, and although they will (hopefully) not be reading this, as they are on their way to their honeymoon, it was such a pleasure to be able to share in such an amazing day with both of you. Angela you looked stunning! Brian you looked, well, the same as always (That’s a comment to how dapper he looks consistently, not to how “regular” he looked at the wedding). Thank you for inviting me to be a part of it!
Secondly I have to linger for a moment longer on the wedding. Brian’s parents are florists in Philadelphia (Lamsback Floral Decorators – I don’t care if you’re not into flowers, TRUST me when I say check out their gallery), and designed the entire ceremony and reception hall – every single table was different! This wedding belongs in a magazine. A magazine that features impossible floral arrangements and petal perfect designs. Also word on the street was that Angela and Brian gave them free rein, and actually didn’t see the final outcome until they entered the rooms just as we all did, in awe. That makes it all the cooler. I’ve attached some pics (courtesy of Chris Plentus!) and as good a photographer as he is, they still don’t do the room justice!
Last week I had the pleasure of once again participating in a program that has truly helped shape the person I am today. The week long MASC summer conference that I work at helps teach high school student council members about leadership, communication, teamwork, goal setting and problem solving. It is amazing that just one week of the year can have such a lasting impact on me, the staff and hundreds of student leaders every year. I count myself lucky to still be a part of the MASC program and be able to hopefully influence and help students.
That said, I got next to nothing done goal-wise! But that is quite alright. The week is obviously worth it and I have plenty of time. So now, I am back on track and back in the swing of things.
I did rack up some travel mileage though! A trip to NH and then travelling to camp in Worcester, and a friend’s wedding up in Princeton, MA.
More updates will come soon, I just needed to post something since I feel like it has been months since my last update. Thanks to everyone in the MASC organization for consistently providing one of the best weeks of the year! I already miss it.
So although I haven’t posted in a long time, the good news is that with some miles traveled to New Hampshire this weekend, every one of my goals is official underway! Sure I still only have 4 crossword puzzle answers, but hey, still counts.
This past weekend was my first of the summer getting up to New Hampshire so it was really great to get up there. The weather was fantastic, I got out on the wakeboard, got some pages read, and traveled some miles! Oh and drank. Yea, we drank a good amount too. Quite successful weekend if I do say so myself.

So I am just over a week in (ok actually 10 days), and had planned on doing an update before this, but hey, I’m busy (you know, doing 130,000 things). Also I happened to start in a week that involved my birthday, and my cousin’s wedding, so we had a LOT of family visiting. The wedding and the entire week was amazing (Shauna and Al, I assume you are stopping to read this while on your honeymoon in Hawaii) and I had so much fun with everyone. That said, it was chaos, (more…)
