Looking back- Fun day at the parade...

This was suppose to be posted back in February but with work and planning my boyfriend's birthday this post was never updated. Please excuse the lateness...

So back in February my boyfriend ask if I wanted to go to a chinese parade related to an asian channel he works for. Not thinking too much into it I said yes thinking it would be nice to go to China Town and hangout for the day.
I had no idea that I was actually going to be walking in the parade. In the front line with the banner with my boyfriend and James Adam Shelly.

It was fun to be in a parade for once and meeting James Adam Shelly was pretty cool. He is good friends with my boyfriend and they worked together for a while before the band he is in, American Authors, hit mainstream.I found it so interesting that he plays the banjo and how it was being on stage on some talkshows on tv.

Here is the music video of their first of many hits Best Day of My Life:    

Life Changes

I forgot to mention a while back that my best friend for about 16 years is getting married to a great guy she met online (on Match no less). They were together a total of 4 years before he popped the question and since then its been a whirlwind year.
And on July 18th they get married and become man and wife.

I am excited and a bit sad. Life is moving so fast! We are all changing- getting older.

Its a happy sadness if that makes any sense.

We all live our lives not realizing that the tiny changes accumulate and when we sit and look back so much has changed.

I am feeling a bit nostalgic so please bear with me. I just finally had a moment to think since it has been crazy couple of months. Now that the wedding is getting closer my duties as maid of honor has amped up as well.

Add to that the fact that 2 months ago I finally moved in with my boyfriend. It is exciting to have a place together and decorate and furniture shop and have a little place that is ours. There were moments that I never thought I would be in this place and I am really grateful.  He is a great man and I never thought I would find anyone like him.
