Last summer, you may recall that I was in all a dither getting ready to go to Spain where Chef Boy ‘R Mine (real name Jeremy) was to marry The World’s Best Daughter-in-Law (real name Vanessa) in a destination wedding on the island of Ibiza. It was a fairytale wedding. It was, by far, the best wedding I’ve ever been to.
Jeremy and Vanessa met on Match.com and they live in Atlanta.
They dated for quite a while before I met Vanessa. I finally got to meet her 4th of July weekend in 2017. Like Jeremy, I was instantly in love with her. She is one of those genuinely kind people that is always gracious. Always. She is also Black, from what Trump referred to as a shit-hole country — Haiti.
Atlanta was under curfew last night. With the National Guard.
I expressed my worry. With the arrogance of youth, he tried to assure me.
I told him that I’m the mom and I have to worry.
I will worry.
I will worry even more when there are grandchildren.
Please watch the video below. Please. Watch all of it. And repost it. This is a wise woman and she speaks truth.
