For quite sometime, we try to find out what is the real meaning of the life. And how can we be happier with a peaceful mind.
Over the weekend, during a staurday morning run,a runner friend asked me why do not I buy expensivecars, and he said that most Asians do. I told himthat I like simple life. And then he asked(jokingly),are you cheap? I told him no, and I have my definitionof happiness, my dream of the life, etc.
Then on Sunday, we attended a wedding, a very simple,but memorable wedding. The couple are a two young musicians(with lots of the dream), and the ceremonywas at the vineyard of bride's former roommate,and the used the backyard of her roommate's to have thedinner and dances.
The bride and groom were driven to the ceremony sceneby a horse-driven carriage, and some of us sit on the benches, some sat on the hays. And the bridemaids dresses, groomsmen dresses, bride's and groom's dress were allhand-made by the bride's mom. All the decoration of thedinner site, the food were all home made, and even thedelicious wedding cake. And in the evening we allparticipated the group dances(not ball dances). My daughter said that the whole wedding is very similarto the one in "Pride and Prejudice". And we all had very good time, and it was indeed a very unique one.
And yesterday, my running partener was engaged, and we got the invitation as well. Will have lots of funand happy time.
