Spring Fresh Scents
Seattle is gorgeous! Even though it was 95 degrees F the entire weekend, and there was NO air conditioning anywhere - it was actually a lot like being home in the Deep South!
Funny pre-wedding moment: I was in the church dressing room with K, the bride. K is one of my oldest friends from childhood. She looked beautiful in her wedding dress and veil.
We were waiting for the ceremony to start. It was hot and stuffy, and we both confessed we were feeling a little gamey under the arms. And realized that we had both forgotten to spray on deodorant.
I rummaged through the drawers in the church dressing room. There was nothing but toilet paper, Clorox Wipes and a can of Lysol Air Freshener.
Yeah, it was really hot, and we were really desperate. So yeah....we, uh, sprayed the Lysol on our underarms.
It seemed to work. And we both smelled pretty good during the ceremony.
The best part about the entire thing was that K said to me, "You know, this would make a GREAT story for your blog!" Yeah, true friends always support you in your endeavors.
I love you, K. I wish you and your husband an eternity of happiness together.
