Annie and I just returned from a wonderful, eight-day whirlwind trip to Los Angeles. I went to attend 3 friends’ weddings all within a week of each other. How many times does THAT happen? Eric said, “Sue, there’s no way that you CAN’T go!” I’m so glad that he encouraged me- it was wonderful to be part of such important events in the lives of special friends…
(I am so sorry that we couldn’t be in touch with more friends in L.A. Our lives were really focused on events surrounding these weddings, and being with my sister Beth who flew from Philadelphia to spend time with us.)
Here are a few highlights:
wedding #1: Tim and Wakako Clark – Tim and I came to Japan together in 1990- it was so great to see him married- a big answer to many prayers!
(Above: Annie with Doug Birdsall– he carried her for a LONG time when jetlag kicked in and she fell asleep during the reception. Below: some favorite Asian Access alumni)
WEDDING #2 – Emi and Sterling
WEDDING #3: Sandy and Robert
Annie basked in the glory of being a flower girl…and had no apprehensions as she walked down the aisle. (Oh, to be young again!). Robert and Sandy both looked wonderful and happy; there is something to be said for small, intimate weddings.
