2 {very} short stories of documentation:

it felt like a holiday the way the restaurant was so busy. we bypassed the line leading up to the hostess platform. we weren’t there for a table. in fact, i don’t think we’ve ever been formally seated at the place before. brushing past everyone, we found our favorite bar spot. & wouldn’t you know it, our favorite barista was working too. we ordered plates of battered shrimp along with fruit mojitos & watched the swimming meets along with the rest of the restaurant. i mean, you’d think the place was a sports bar, the way we were all glued to the screens. we finished off our white truffle raspberry signature just to run back to the apartment & watch the rest of the matches. that night marked seven months of us being married.

about a week or so before, i found myself with a group of bridesmaids stumbling across hope campus. i was one of the party, soley because the bride-to-be was getting married to my brother. we had just left the rooftop bar of city view & were making our way around downtown holland. i had only met these girls hours before, but my arms were already linked around theirs. we were all talking as if we had known each other for years. & then we passed one of hope’s chapels & i remembered standing in the snow with lindsay & lauren & annie & jason outside of that very place, for the sam beam concert about three years back. one of the girls on my arm said something that made everyone laugh, & then said “that would be so YOU, alisha, to do that.” i almost teared up. i was so love-drunk. the solidarity that was produced within a day mirrored by solidarity that was built up over years. i had heard ‘jezebel’ for the first time that winter night. & sam ended with ‘trapeze swinger’ which is molded in my mind forever. & as i wandered the campus that summer evening with that bridal party, i could hear those songs ringing in my ear. the songs of my life, of my past & things to come.
