We managed to survive another infamous Zamborsky wedding celebration, barely emerging with our livers intact, as usual. Dad & Kathy had actually gotten married in Rome earlier this summer, and this was the second of two celebrations to commemorate the occasion and give the two families a chance to meet. I'm not gonna lie; the whole thing was a little surreal and somewhat bittersweet. That aside, we had a lovely time overeating and overdrinking and meeting lots and lots of Owens family members. They are a clan after our own hearts: raucous, numerous, and they know how to knock back a few.
Between all the overindulgence, it was a great time to wander around Chicago. Awesome weather. Jazz Fest in Grant Park. Oprahpalooza shutting down Michigan Ave. And to make things even more festive, the Marriott was overrun with partying Ugandans. (Check out a snippet from Sonia's Ugandan dance lesson.) It was quite a weekend.
We have only a short time to detox from all these festivities before heading to Italy, but it was worth it. Any opportunity to gather the fam together in one place = good times!
