Look at that volume!! I never thought my hair could reach such heights, but Denise at Overhaul Salon proved me wrong. Don’t mind the painting of the woman behind me – it’s all part of the cool Aussie image. This photo was taken the morning of Ann and Adam’s wedding, when the bridesmaids met to get our hair done for the wedding. As you’ll see, mind ended up in a classic french twist – nothing like what you might have thought by the looks of this photo. The whole wedding weekend was perfect and actually rather relaxing with champagne before the ceremony, heavy hors d’ouevres through the reception to allow for pleasant mingling amongst guests, and an American-style brunch on Sunday with shrimp and grits, bloody marys, pancakes with Aunt Jemima Syrup and Starbuck’s coffee. The rehearsal dinner was also a treat, as the theme was an Australian bbq, including Sue’s (Adam’s mom) famous Shrimp on the barbie.
What really made the weekend so special was that I was able to share it with my two best girlfriends from high school, Natalie and Ann (my toe tattoo buddies).
Even though much time has passed since seeing them, we were able to instantly reconnect and have a wonderful time together. I couldn’t have imagined a better start to my Aussie and New Zealand adventure!
