4 Spring to a Break

Imagine, if you will, four college friends. All are successful, each with individual talents. Each is fun loving, bright, ambitious and very well mannered, even around their elders like me. They share a love of all things Wisconsin and cheered as the badgers recently took down their Kentucky rivals. In addition, they share a common love of music. No, they are not rappers or leftovers from a past hair-band era. Our musical friends are, dare I say, far more talented. They have all been part of the award winning A Cappella singing group, Fundamentally Sound.

The harsh Wisconsin winter finally subsided enough to allow our nephew Vinnie, and three of his good friends, to fold themselves in a single small car for their Spring Break 2015 Adventure! With plenty capable drivers on board, they quickly drove to the promised land – a land of sun, sand and surf – South Florida! Over their almost week-long foray into the paradise we call home, they sunned on the beach, walked in the sand, kayaked among alligators, and most importantly, lived a little of the SoBe (South Beach) nightlife.  In short, they generally had a great time! We were excited to spend a few precious moments with such wonderful young men.  After we said our good-byes and they once again headed to the northern tundra, I am happy to say that I would call them each my friend.

Here’s to celebrating Spring Break, even if we are a few years past our 20’s. And most importantly, here’s to spending time with wonderful family members and the fun people they add to our lives!

When we last left our newlywed couple, Julia and Troy said “I Do” and they became Mr. and Mrs. Quick.  For several hours after, family and friends danced, ate, drank and danced some more.  All were blissfully happy as they celebrated the big day!

The father-daughter dance was an especially touching moment.  Julia and her father have long had a strong bond.  Tears ran down her father’s cheek as he showed such pride and joy in the woman Julia has become.
