on the road

Been on the road these past couple of weeks.....from NYC to San Fran to Mill Valley, to Calistoga, St. Helena and now finally back home in Milano. I'm also coming off a week of wedding festivities, as my best friend in the whole entire world just got hitched last Saturday. Yahoo! And let me tell ya, it was pure magic. I just can't believe it's all over? I know the bride is the one that usually gets the wedding blues but is there a best friend, bridesmaid blues version? cause, I think I've got it. I was so lucky to be able to spend the entire week with my BFF before the big day, as we live halfway around the world from each other, approx. 5,968.2 miles apart and rarely get to see each other, except for our daily skype dates.  When we both decided to leave NYC (5 years ago) to be with our significant others, it was a BIG deal. We thought we'd never leave NYC and always live right next door to one another (preferably in brownstones on a picturesque street in Cobble Hill, yes that was our big dream) but apparently there was a bigger dream awaiting us, our future hubbies. So San Fran called out to her and Milano called out to me and off we went. So you can imagine, how special it was to have the entire week leading up to the big day just hanging out, working on various wedding projects, relaxing at the spa for sisters bridal bridesmaid day and enjoying family dinners. One of my favorite moments of the week was getting up very very early on the wedding day with my BFF to have her pick out the flowers for our bridesmaids bouquets which I was so thrilled to make. I even got to work in a real florists studio! It was a quiet and special morning with her and glad we had that time. But I have to admit, I'm a little bit sad it's all over. boo hoo. Can't wait to share the details.....
