My baby sister got married yesterday.
See how much cuter she is than me?
She and I are now both February brides, with my three older sisters all having picked more sensible times in our Minnesota climate – like July and August – to be married.
Her wedding day dawned cold but clear, much like mine, and there were no worries about a blizzard or impassable roads.
It’s strange to think that she is even old enough to be married. I’m nearly certain it was just yesterday I was watching her play soccer with her high school team, helping her with 4-H projects, and taking pictures at her first prom. Her college years practically evaporated. Now she’s all grown up with a husband and home of her own. I suppose my older sisters thought the same things at my wedding nearly five years ago, but at least they all have several little sisters to fret over. (Who knows if that makes it easier…)
I’ve just got one.
Ready or not, she will never be little again.
With every part of me, I am so proud of her and so happy she found that special person to share her life with. Congratulations Laura and Kevin. May God bless you and your marriage with his richest peace, hope, and love.
