Wedding memories

One of my earliest memories of Myke was getting to be the flower girl at his wedding. I don’t think I really knew what a wedding was for, I was just excited to look like a princess. My biggest impression of the day was the joy that surrounded everything. I remember the silence in the church as Myke and Li-Ming said their vows and the loud celebration that followed. I remember being scared for Li-Ming’s dress when Myke fed her the first piece of cake. I remember how much fun everyone had dancing on the grass and how, despite all the chaos of children running around them, Myke and Li-Ming seemed to be in their own bubble of joy. It was the first wedding I had been to and I remember thinking maybe this is what adults mean when they talk about love and partnership. It was a truly beautiful event and I was honored to be a part of it.
