Births, Wedding

january birthdays 2032

Zilla’s wedding is an intimate affair, with only their parents flying down to attend. Zilla didn’t want the attention, but her Mom was adamant she must be in attendance, and Zilla finds she is okay with it.

The wedding is in their own backyard, both Pete and Zilla are in the desert, searching for signs of life on other planets, signs they’ve visited this planet.

It doesn’t exactly pay well, but they’re both happy.

take my hand – millett/mccarthy wedding

Julia Millett (28 years), Elias McCarthy (25 years), Grady McCarthy (1 month)

Leah is upstairs, helping her daughter prepare for her wedding. This is her first time seeing her daughter’s living quarters in this whirlwind engagement, and she’s holding her tongue on the very “Nicole-ness” quality of their bedroom.

Oliver McCarthy (33 years), Brooklyn (28 years), Colleen (1 year)

He would graduate in May if things went accordingly, and he really intended them to as he couldn’t imagine having to repeat a single semester; he was completely done with the higher education system. There just wasn’t time for all the things he wanted to do when he had to keep his head in the books.

Colleen was crawling around on a mission to befriend every single animal on the street. Mostly she stuck to Roux, but they were certain if a skunk wandered on the lot, she’d definitely try to hug it.

til death do us part

Elodie’s nerves were fraying as they arrived at Waverly Gardens. She was apprehensive about the union, and feeling melancholy for her Mom who was sitting at home alone; she didn’t even have Gulliver their dog since he passed.

Quint complimented Elodie as she walked over. He knew this day was a struggle for everyone, including himself. There was an underlying pathos amongst them all even as they tried to be happy for the moment.

The forecast was supposed to be clear until the evening, but they awoke to chilly showers with a near brutal breeze. Erin was relieved that she’d trusted her gut and changed the venue.
