This week for our wisdom capture, we asked Connected Living users to share one of their happiest memories and explain what makes the event so special.
After reading through the many responses on the CLN, I realized that I was having a difficult time coming up with my own happiest memory to share. The problem wasn’t that I have no happy memories, but the opposite — I have too many happy memories!
Too many happy memories? I think that’s hardly a problem at all!
I decided that the happy memory I’d like to share today is of a wedding I attended last summer. The bride was a family friend I’d known almost my entire life, and I could not have been more thrilled for her. My immediate family (parents and sister) and my grandmother were all in attendance along with the bride’s family, with whom I have always been very close. For an entire weekend, we took the phrase “eat, drink, and be merry,” very literally and everyone had a fantastic time!
