NaBloPoMo day 21: near nuptials
tomorrow morning, i’m so lucky to be traveling to Richmond for a girls’ weekend. for a wedding! my first second wedding. for one of my Game Girls.
for y’all that don’t know, the Game Girls are the girls i spent the better part ofmy mid-20s and 30s with. these are the girls i met in/after grad school. the girls that seriously shaped that period of my life, and are still some of my best friends. ever. we sometimes refer to ourselves now as the Golden Game Girls. but our ages are really neither here, nor there.
in that time, back in the late 90s/early 00s (much after the fashion, quite honestly) in Richmond, we loved us some Journey. let’s just say there was a lot of Journey karaoke at Cafe 21. there was a lot of late-nite Journey at Sidewalk. there was a lot of just. always. Journey.
so in reverence . . . and expectation, i leave you tonight, with the ultimate Journey that is so wedding-appropriate. and makes me just well up. and cry.
