Something Old, Something New

Something old, some thing new. My boyfriend accidentally agreed for us to attend two events happening at the same time on the same day. Our options were to either celebrate an old marriage (50th anniversary) or a new marriage (Jack and Jill). We were the only couple brave enough to offend both parties and make an appearance at both. In other words, leaving a party early/showing up late at another). It all worked out though.

The first event was the Jack & Jill. My boyfriend joked about how he literally changed the diapers of the groom-to-be and how he was getting old. They gave away sugar eggs as party favors, held raffles with tons of cool prizes, and had a 50/50.

The anniversary party was at the couple’s house instead of a restaurant. They had old wedding photos hanging from balloons, they recreated their wedding party photos, and there were plenty of refreshments. There was a bar, cupcakes, chocolate fountain, candy, etc… Both events were beautiful and it is great to see how love can be celebrated with friends and family, old or new.

When you’re accidentally double-booked for events do you celebrate a new marriage or an old one? Something old or something new?

Lei Day/May Day

lei day

Aloha friends! Today (May 1, 2018) is the 91st annual Lei Day in Hawaii. I’d love to be celebrating somewhere tropical, but the weather is getting nicer here in New England. Hopefully, soon it’ll feel like being on a Hawaiian getaway too. Across all islands, schools celebrate Lei Day with songs, hula dancing and a procession of the Lei Day court. at least, it was first held in the courts and town halls but has since been moved to Kapi’olani park where it is still being held today.

The lei is the universally recognized symbol of Hawaii. Traditionally, fragrant and vivid blossoms are made into garlands. Although commonly and commercially made from flowers, lei are often crafted with leaves, nuts, shells, feathers or ribbon. They embrace their wearers and are warm, welcoming gifts that represent love, compassion, respect, and celebration.
Hopefully, you get Lei’ed today. 😜🌺 Hawaii is on my travel bucket list and I would love to visit the beautiful islands one day.
