Weddings Are Blue Zones
The Blue Zones emphasize the importance of family. Few events are more family centered than a wedding. Our son was married this past weekend in California. All aspects of our Iowa family were represented, as well as my sister from Ohio. We enjopyed our time together.
More important, we got to know the bride’s family better. Despite differences in geography and distant ethnic backgrounds, we all hold similar values of family, faith, and purpose (pillars of the Blue Zones).
We all knew that the bride would fit in well a year ago, when she helped, then not yet 3 year old, RJ get over the fact that attention was centered on his 6 week old sister, Gwen.
The cycle of life moves on and we are enjoying it. You should take time to enjoy your point in the cycle of a Blue Zones life.
