It's the family you choose <3  
My dear friend Sarah - we grew up together, so close that I often refer to her as "cousin" - recently got engaged. She's far far away in Maine right now for school, so I haven't seen her in a while, but I was super happy when I heard the news because her fiance is a lovely guy.

She sent me a Facebook message today with more information about the wedding. It'll be next summer, here in town. Then she asked me if I'd be one of her bridesmaids, which was really a shock. Not because we aren't still close, because we are, and we've known each other forever. (Literally since I was in second grade, I think...) But just because...well, I guess because I'm an old married lady, and old married ladies don't get to be bridesmaids, right?

But of course I said yes, because I would love to be in her wedding party, celebrating the big day. How awesome is it that my li'l cuz is getting married next year?



Kenny, me, and cousin Sarah way back in 2001
