I spent the weekend in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina, feeling oh-so-honored as bridesmaid for a special friend of mine! I met the bride on the first day of orientation at college- we were roommates and discovered that we were both horse crazy girls who were determined not to gain the dreaded freshman 15. So what started out as a running partnership evolved into party antics and then developed into a beautiful friendship that has lasted all these last 9 years!
So last week was a balancing act of evenings spent getting manicures (necessary for bridesmaids who are also
barn heathens riders) and spray tans (again, necessary for covering up that sports bra tanline you got last week while outside showjumping), and maybe getting in a little saddle time that hopefully won’t undo all the hard work it took to actually make you look human again. Le sigh.
But all in all, the wedding was perfect- a little bit of everything needed to make for a great occasion. Much love, a few drinks, and lots of laughter. Also, I only tripped once. A resounding success, all around.
