My wife and I are both going back to work today after taking a long weekend off to celebrate our daughters wedding. The whole week-long celebration was filled with pure joy. It feels a bit odd to dive back in to work, although I suspect we will both take the joy of love into what we do today.
As two introverts, I think both of us were surprised at how much we enjoyed spending time with family and friends each day. Seeing our parents, siblings, nieces, and nephews, cousins, and friends from work all mingling together at the reception was amazing. Dancing with the little kids who lost themselves in the music was one of the highlights of the weekend, especially when little Emma would bow at the end of each song.
I feel like we drank from the fountain of ‘leaping-for-life’ water and that it will be a long while before we thirst again.
