all kinds of impressed

I am so impressed by this girl. If the same thing had happened to me, the end result would be me crying into some ice cream or as Liz Lemon would say "I'm going to go talk to some food about this"

A jilted bride turned her heartache into a Happy Halloween for hundreds of senior citizens.

Teanne Harris, who lives outside of Chicago, was supposed to walk down the aisle Saturday when her fiance suddenly got cold feet.

And when Harris and her mom went to retrieve their deposit from the suburban catering hall where the reception was to be held, they were told it was too late.

Sitting in the parking lot sad and depressed, Harris was commiserating with her mom, Bari, when they glanced over at the Asbury Court Retirement Community across the street - and a light bulb went off in their heads.

"It was a hurtful time for her," said Mary Eichenfeld, the resident services director at the facility in Des Plaines, Il. "They were just sitting in their car and decided to make something good out of the disastrous situation."


  1. Wow. I can't imagine working through that sort of pain and being generous enough in the moment to find a way to salvage something worthwhile. She clearly has a good heart, and hopefully someone will come along who appreciates it.

  2. Awesome story! Thanks for sharing this!
