If you haven’t read IT HAD TO BE YOU (the third Weddings by Bella book) you might want to skip this post. I’m about to share info from the book that could be considered “spoiler” in nature.
In this (very fun!) story, Uncle Laz and Aunt Rosa get married in a 40s swing style wedding. Talk about a blast. They hire a Big Band to play all of their favorites from the 40s and 50s. Why? Because love, no matter how late it comes in life, is worth celebrating! And what better way to celebrate than with a dance around the reception hall?
I’ll be honest: I’m at that age where I wonder if the love-bug will ever bite me again. If he does, I might go looking for the insect repellant. Or, I might fall hopelessly, helplessly in love and spend the rest of my days floating on a cloud.
For many of my friends, this has already happened. A couple of years back I celebrated alongside a dear friend who got married to a fella she’d met years prior (in high school). He found her on Facebook. (Yep. That really does happen!) I had the privilege of baking the cake for their wedding reception, and had a blast doing it. Watching my friend and her new sweetheart, I had to admit: love comes in its due season. We can’t rush the hand of God. Like Rosa and Laz, my good friends were/are a match made in heaven. Who knows? Maybe one day I’ll strike up a match of my own! In the meantime, check out IT HAD TO BE YOU to see where the journey takes Rosa and Laz. Their happily-ever-after will bring a smile to your face!
