Although we did fit in a little vacation time, the purpose of our trip to New York was to attend the wedding of our friends Jen and Tom. Jen is an incredibly talented and creative artist– musically, visually, she masters it all! Their wedding was so charming and so FUN. Also, the food- DELICIOUS. They had these amazing passed appetizers, and then a family style dinner of Peking Duck with lentils, short ribs with rice, and fish with vegetables. SO GOOD.
We sat next to Jen’s friend (whose name escapes me), who sewed her amazing wedding dress, and dance skirt! I spent the whole dinner lavishing him with praise for his talents, he was swimming in it. He, and all the other guests, were super friendly and approachable, which made this wedding extra-fun!
He did ask me if we have horses in Pittsburgh. I told him there are horses in the ‘burbs, but we do know how to drive cars here. I don’t think he believed me.
These two can’t get any cuter! Jen serenaded Tom, and then he joined her onstage for a duet so adorable I almost died of the cute! Going to one of Jen’s comedy shows is more what I had in mind in my 30 before 30 goal of seeing her perform, but with my schedule between now and November, it looks like that might not happen. But Jen DID perform here, so I’m counting this!

They had a fantastic DIY photobooth, using an iPad!
CONGRATULATIONS JEN & TOM!
