some wedding wishes for my sister

Go to my sister’s blog to read my “matron of honor” speech that I read at the reception. I know put that way, it sounds a little boring. But you might like it, so go check it out.  Here is an excerpt:

Speaking of roosters, if you’re rooster, you’d better behave when Liz is around. When my parents lived on a farm for a couple years, Liz raised chickens and if one of the young roosters pushed or shoved or didn’t go back into its pen when it was supposed to, Liz would slate it for the butcher. Yup, she ran a tight chicken coop.


In the wee hours of this morning when we probably should have been sleeping, Liz told me that four years ago she had started a journal to her future husband. The entries are quite sporadic–months, even a year apart. She read me a couple paragraphs from the final entry before that first contact from Dan. I have her permission to share it with you…

There may or may not be a video coming soon. It all depends on whether my brother sends the file to me like he said he was going to  (hint hint hint if you’re reading this!), and if he does, whether or not, I want to share it with you. It might not be a pretty 12 minutes.
