    My 1st Experience As A Bridesmaid Was Less Then Joyful

    I was psyched to be a bridesmaid for my cousin's marriage, but it turned out to be a pain in the backside. I was never close to my cousin, so I didn't really expect her to really share anything and that was the case. She picked out shoes (******** heel shoes). I went along and...

    (from my journal, June 2013) When I poked my head out of the tent as the wedding was underway I looked behind me and straight up towards the hotel itself. To my surprise there were 3-4 people looking out of various windows on various floors of the hotel. Waving and...
