You guys. I feel like I just got hit by a bus. Not just any bus, one of those double long busses that connect in the middle with the rubber accordion things that you only see in major cities. Why, you ask? Well, Leo’s little preschool was nice enough to put on a movie night for families. You show up in your pjs, get a slice of pizza and watch A Charlie Brown Christmas. I talked it up with the boys and we were all excited. I got them dressed in their matching pjs and told them how much fun we were going to have and strolled on down to the school. As it turns out, the vision of each little boy sitting snuggly on my knees watching the movie together was just a dream. While everyone else’s child (yes, CHILD, everyone else only brought one, or brought one per adult…Alex’s stupid job did not help my situation) sat quietly and attentively, my two cubs (dressed in matching bear pjs, of course) ran around like banshees and I spent the hour yell-whispering for Leo and Nico to stop riding on one another backs, and stop jumping over other children trying to watch the movie and stop hitting the stinking screen. So much for relaxing. I apologize to the entire community for the Bruno boys behavior and I’m about to crawl into bed and pretend that it was all a really bad dream.
But before I do I am going to end my day the best way possible, by sharing images from Keri and Brian’s romantic November wedding at the Boston Harbor Hotel. I knew I liked these two after our engagement session, but I feel head over heels again sharing their wedding day with them. I was able to bounce back and forth between Keri and Brian’s rooms as they got ready for their day and they both seemed so ready to marry the one they loved. Keri fluttered around the room making sure all her girls were fed and pouring drinks and asking me if I needed anything. How someone is so selfless is beyond me (literally because I only cared about myself on my wedding day and let everyone else do the heavy lifting—sorry guys). But it really is just a testament to who Keri is; she is kind, and relaxed, and welcoming, and all the things that I know are going to make her the perfect wife and mother. And Brian really blew me out of the water, too. He was so excited to give his groomsman their man crates (awesome gift if anyone is looking) and was so thoughtful with Keri’s gift—he even shopped on Etsy for it which is hands down the truest predictor of how good a husband he will be. And anyone that thinks their day won’t be as special if they do a first look, should take an extra hard glance at Keri and Brian’s. His face? SWOON. Their day was filled with laughter and tears and all the people who these two loved the most. Being able to capture this day was an honor I won’t soon forget.
