Year 2014 was filled with so many wonderful surprises! I am ecstatic that not one, not two, but three of my four bridesmaids got engaged!! I already know that 2015 is gonna be an exciting year filled with lots of wedding planning, bachelorette parties and bridal showers!! Wooohooo.
It’s such an honor to document a special milestone for someone so close to my heart. Irene and I met in 1997 (8th grade) at a mutual friend’s birthday party. We had so much in common that we knew we were gonna be good friends. Irene lived in Bakersfield (at the time) so we remained pen pals for about a year. Yes, you read correctly, pen pals. Not all of us had internet and emails back in the days. LOL. It wasn’t until 1998 that she moved to Alhambra and we attended AHS together and remained good friends all through college.
The first time I met Tom was at my birthday party where I forced him to eat some clam chowder that I made. “Forced” maybe a lack of a better word, but he didn’t tell me he doesn’t like clam chowder. LOL. And for the record though, I make a bomb New England clam chowder. =)
In all seriousness though, I am extremely happy that Irene found Tom. It warms my heart to see how Tom makes her so happy and they bring out the best in each other. Thank you Tom for taming this crazy friend of mine. =) Can’t wait till your big day!!
