That Day Before the Wedding in Kagoshima

Can I tell you how excited I am to be in Kagoshima?
It’s been years since I was last here.
But back again for the same reason as before.
My bestie is getting married!!!

Here they are…
no wedding jitters here!
I love these two together.
So glad that they found each other. x

Here are the boys practicing their song
for the wedding reception.

Their voices are so loud
I was sure the windows would crack.

This is what happens when your classmates
go on to study music in university.

And you know you’re in Kagoshima
when there’s a garbage pile specifically for volcano ash.

That Wedding in Kagoshima

*Throwback Thursday: I’m slowly (very slowly) going to be bringing my old posts to this blog.

The special day is finally here!
My BFF’s wedding!
S was so beautiful.
Everyone saw how she shined
especially her husband. Aw.

The wedding reception was fabulous, too!

S had asked me to do the speech at the reception.
Ended up taking over a month
writing it, fixing it, and practicing it.
Somehow I got through it.
My speech instructor in college used to always tell me
“Speak slowly, don’t cry.”
Well, I tried to speak slowly
but couldn’t help crying here and there.
I mean, it was my best friend
and this was my first ever wedding speech!
(Cut me some slack here…haha)
But I made S cry, too, so it wasn’t just me 😉

Happiest of marriages to this amazing couple!

That Weekend at the Tennis Tournament

Back at the tournament again this year!
I always think it’s going to be my last year
but then they invite me and I can’t seem to say no.
I really love my peeps.

My sister Y was here again this year, too.
So much fun seeing old friends back here every year.

This was the finals match.
A beautiful Sunday afternoon.
A full house always gets us all pumped up.

The final match was between
Nadal and Murray.
Somewhere along the way
I started rooting for the Spaniard.
Maybe because he smells so good even
right after finishing his match?
But he lost 36 62 60.

Hope he comes again next year.
And I really hope our team
can get together again net year, too!
