Are we doomed? (My Wedding story)
I have lived on Long Island my entire life (39 years) and have just recently relocated to GA. While I really do like where we are right now, it makes me love and appreciate Long Island all that much more...
My husband and I joke about our marriage being doomed because now, 10+ years later, everything associated with our wedding is gone.
My bridal shower was held in a restaurant down in Port Jefferson which is now gone. While I can't recall the name, it was next to the Dockside and a McDonalds now stands where it once did.
We were married at St. Patricks in Smithtown in October, 1997, and while the building still remains, it is no longer a church--the new one sits beside it.
Lastly, our wedding reception was held at the Hauppauge Country Club--again, no longer there. A newer Stonebridge Country club was built to accommodate all of the homes built on the golf course.
It's sad that the landmarks of my wedding day are gone--can't drive by and reminisce or show the kids. However, I have pictures, videos and memories that remain in my heart....just like Long Island will always remain in my heart.
So, are we doomed? I would say no. We have 3 beautiful children, all born in Huntington Hospital and a good life...we are blessed.
We may have left Long Island, but Long Island will never leave us!!
