Vacation time or wedding season?

If Jay-Z’s right and 30 is the new 20, than I’m technically 17 and that’s fabulous.
Unfortunately, in real time I’m a grown working woman who’s free time is precious.
So I’ve always made it a goal to live it up each spring and summer. It’s my time to travel, visit friends and just have fun.

I start in the spring because I still get that spring fever and unfortunately I no longer have spring break or even summer break for the matter.
So it takes a lot of careful planning to make it all work, but it’s possible.
There’s only one kink that can mess up all of that: The wedding.

I’m all about love and holy matrimony, especially when it comes to my dear friends.
I've been going to friends' weddings since 2003. I swear in 2004, I attended at least one wedding a month – No joke. And I'm not talking about just local weddings, no I'm talking about out of town, all over the place.

On one hand it’s fun because it’s usually like a mini-reunion. I mean for that one day you get to re-live fun college days, see sorority sisters and friends. And there’s nothing like the wedding reception – Shoot, in my opinion that’s what the day is really all about for guests, you know?
And of course, you don’t have a wedding reception without the electric slide, Harlem shuffle or whatever the heck you wanna call it.

But I swear, I think I need some kinda detox from weddings this year. So far, I only have four to attend, thank GAWD! And three out of four of those are already on conflicting dates, so I’m not sure if I’ll even make all of them.
And I mean, I have very good reasons for missing some of them. VERY good reasons. Very important reasons.

So does that make me less of a friend for skipping some of these nuptials this year? I mean I’ll send a gift – Isn’t that all that really matters? If any of my friends are reading this that happen to be getting married, I’m not talking about you, of course…
