Bridal shower happiness

A couple weeks ago, I went to Craftbar NYC to celebrate my cousin's bridal shower. Bridal showers are really those events that sets your whole life in perspective before you reach a milestone. You know it's like when you go to your high school graduation rehearsal or when you have that last get together with your friends before you all go your separate ways until next summer. Even though this isn't my bridal shower, it still makes me think.

I've seen my cousin grow up. I've seen her graduate, I've seen her get on the Dean's List for the first time, and I remember that first Christmas when she was able to afford to get everyone Christmas gifts with her own money. Now, she's going to get married in just a few days. It doesn't seem that long ago that she wasn't engaged or even dating her current fiance. It makes me think where I'd be in ten years or even five.

I can't wait until that period of my life where all my friends are starting to get married and I just get invited non-stop to all these cute and creative bridal showers and that staring in awe later at the actual wedding!
