Back from New York, where my sister was married last weekend. The wedding was lovely, the bride and groom looking at each other in that way that tells you that there really is something special there, the groom in his eagerness jumping in several lines two early with his “I do.”
After which we all danced until midnight, and there was much joy all around. Spent time with my Mom and my Dad and lots of other relatives I see not nearly often enough.
The next day, had lunch with my Mom and my sister and my brother and all of our significant others. It was–an oddly but pleasantly settled feeling, these three couples hanging out together, each one different but all of them somehow right, where once there had been just my sister and brother and me.
(And yeah, the dress was fine. As everyone but me knew it would be. 🙂
