What is a couple to do when they have three hours to kill in Valparaiso?
That was the question my boyfriend and I had to answer this past weekend, when we were in Valparaiso for his cousin’s wedding. We had three hours between the wedding and the dinner reception, and we decided to use it to look around Valparaiso University.
We looked around the art gallery and took our time to over-analyze and critique each piece. For some reason I only remembered to take one photo.
The highlight of the tour was definitely the Chapel of the Resurrection.
I cannot imagine seeing this every Sunday. It would be amazing.
Or would I grow insensitive to the beauty after I got used to it? That would be sad.
And we were a little silly.
Then, we decided to drive around Valparaiso. We saw lots of nice houses. I found one that had a similar design to some buildings at Purdue, so of course I had to take a picture.
The whole day was fun, and this was my first wedding reception that involved a fancier sit-down meal. So far, I have only attended weddings of very young couples marrying who were still in college and therefore had very tight budgets. This was also the first wedding that involved dancing. I only almost fell out of my high-heeled shoes once, and my boyfriend only elbowed me in the back of the head once–and it didn’t even hurt!–so I consider the evening a success!
