Old Friends

My good friend Tanja came into town for the Great American Beer Festival, held at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver. Tanj works for Otter Creek Brewery in Vermont. Well, the brewery's in Vermont, but Tanja lives in Rhode Island. She's in sales. As she likes to say, she sells beer.

Tanja came in on Wednesday, and I planned to take Thursday off to hang out with her. I had actually decided to work Thursday morning before calling her to check in. "You'd better not be working tomorrow morning," she said, "because I have something fun for us to do." Uh-oh. "Uhhhhhh.... what is it?" "We're going to a wedding," she said. "What?" "Julie Lamy's getting married."

Holy cow.

It so happened that our friend and ex-housemate from 712 E. Cottage Grove in Bloomington, Indiana, was having a marriage ceremony in Estes Park, Colorado. And she happened to be doing it that Thursday. So what could I do? I got out of my work commitments, and Tanja and I drove up early Thursday morning to join the crew. We all hiked about 45 minutes to a beautiful spot called Moraine Park or something similar, and witnessed the marriage of Julie Lamy to Ramunus. I don't know Ramunus' last name, but they met in Lithuania, where Julie was in the Peace Corp, and she calls him Moon for short, which is cool, so that's all I really need to know.

Tanja and I wore dresses. We were over-dressed. (Get it?)

Congratulations Julie and Ramunus!
