Trip over love, you can get up. Fall in love and you fall forever.

This month has been interesting with 1) two weddings in 4 weeks, 2) the grooms were childhood neighbors from Murrysville, PA (my home town, just outside of Pittsburgh) and 3) I was able to reconnect with an old high school friend at each wedding.   
Men always want to be a woman's first love. Women have a more subtle instinct: What they like is to be a man's last romance.

Mike Pritts and I at his wedding reception!

"
I dreamed of a wedding of elaborate elegance,
A church filled with family and friends. 
I asked him what kind of a wedding he wished for, 
He said one that would make me his wife." - Author Unknown

So.... at Pittsburgh weddings, everyone and their mother brings in dozens of cookies.
Guest are required to take home a goodie bag.
I think it's a Polish thing...

Marriage is the only war in which you sleep with the enemy
