Today is exactly one week since I returned home to Portland, Ore., from a quick trip to Fort Wayne, Ind., where I celebrated the wedding of Baby-Baby Brother and now Sister-In-Law. I missed a lot of Baby-Baby Brother’s life — he was only about eight years old when I moved out of Indiana. So when he called and invited me to his wedding I knew this was one event I was not going to miss! To my surprise the weather in Fort Wayne was perfect: about 65 degrees and sunny. I had brought winter clothes to wear so found myself shopping for some cooler clothes. Luckily, I found something but had to pay retail. When you’re used to shopping at Goodwill it was a bit of sticker shock!
The groom was handsome and the bride beautiful. And the prime rib lunch following the brief Saturday morning ceremony was delicious! The bride and groom were — and are — in my Aunt G.’s words “outstanding” individuals. Sister-In-Law is also a whiz at sending thank you notes. Mine arrived in the mail about two days after I returned from the wedding! Now that’s fast!
