Exhaustion...'s amazing how exhausting a wedding can be - and I'm not even the bride! You have all this preparation and build-up for months, maybe even years, and it all leads up to a ceremony that lasts about 20 minutes. I'm sure there are people who think it's all very silly, but we had such a great time! Kelly and Brandon got hitched without a hitch, looked great and had a great time. We all had a great time, really. The reception was a blast! I can't remember the last time I danced that much. And the food - well, the food was out of this world! If you live in or ever get to the Indianapolis area, take a trip to the south side (37 and Southport) and eat a Pauly's Italian Restaurant. The food is great and the service is better. Anyway...Kelly and Brandon have never looked happier! I just cried when I saw them light their unity candle. I mean, how long had we all been praying for Kelly to find a good guy? God is so faithful...

I'll get pictures up from the wedding soon...Peace!

So - let's explore what this blog stuff is all about, shall we? I think I'll use mine as a place to just think and reflect. My husband is in seminary right now, so really, I should have a lot to reflect on. At this moment though, I can only reflect on the fact that I am sleep deprived. My little sister is getting married this weekend, and I have been working a lot the past few days so I can be gone later this week. A wedding is an interesting thing to prepare for. I wonder how they got to be these huge events? If anyone has insight on this, let me know. The only thing I can come up with is that we're always trying to out-do one another (myself included). In 20 years, what will a wedding look like? How much will a typical wedding cost? Too much, I'm sure. I love weddings though - really, I do! If it's done right, a wedding is a time of covenant, of celebration, of love. Who doesn't like that???
