A Wedding

This is my sister and her new husband. Aren't they a cute couple? They got married yesterday. I couldn't make it to the wedding. It's really not my fault I couldn't go. They told us two weeks ago that they were going to tie the knot. I just could not coordinate a flight plan to work for everyone involved.

I am so excited about the gift idea I had. A ten year Journal. It's one of my favorite possessions. I only got it this year, but already it has been a treasure to our family. My sister-in-law has had this journal for quite a few years now, and I know her family feels the same way. I thought it would be a great thing to give newlyweds so they could start documenting their life together from the very beginning.

On a side note, I told her a few months ago that I couldn't be in her wedding. Mainly because I am still fat from having babies (and she's skinny), but also because there's a slight possibility I may be bad luck. I have been a bridesmaid in five weddings. Four have ended in divorce. I am glad I was not able to be a bridesmaid in my own wedding!

Congratulations Lil' Sis. I wish I could have been there with you. I love you!


  1. They are a cute couple and I doubt your bad luck.

    I'm off to check out this Ten Year Journal.


  2. I thought it was you at first, Michelle!
    Blessings to the newlyweds!

  3. I can't believe how much she looks like you now. Congrats "little sis" on getting married....again.

    E-mail me her address if you have time!

    Just curious....who's wedding were you in that the marriage has "survived"?


I love to hear what you have to say.
