My little sister, five years my junior, is engaged. And even though I still picture her as my smaller, more freckled and bouncier little shadow, I suppose she isn’t so little anymore. Jody’s fiance is a handsome doctor – an MD and PHd. Who went to Yale. Who is over 6 feet tall and dedicated his 415 page dissertation to her. AND I’M TOTALLY COOL WITH ALL THAT. Swear.
I love my little sister, and I love her fiancee Bill, or Dr. Bill as my parents refer to him (first doc of any sort in the family). But I got into a verbal altercation with my last date, so I know that I’m miles away from tying the knot. I’d at least like to have a date to my sister’s wedding by June 1, 2013, which doesn’t seem too crazy, right? RIGHT?!
Today, my kid friends help me accept the reality of this situation, but more importantly, they help me hatch a back up plan to steal Jody’s thunder if this love & light stuff doesn’t work.
Oh, and quick clarification: Her wedding is in a MEADOW not a BARN as I’ve learned since this shoot took place.
