Number 19:


The Roommate,
my friend,
my chosen sister,
Jessie Jones,
got married on Saturday.


There were wine bottles
and Jurassic flowers
and roses and peonies
and a very small dinosaur on her bouquet.

Protea, Thistles, Peonies and Roses, Oh My!


There was a brief rain shower,
during which we all stayed blessedly dry.

There was laughter and dancing
with far away friends,
home with us just for a little while,
and two of the best toasts I have ever heard–
they couldn’t help but be that way

Jessie and Mike have made their lives around people who are wonderful,
just as they are.

Making a wedding happen is always hard work–
I’m home sick for the second day in a row because of it.

But every once in a while,
I get to be a part of a day that is so special,
I would do it all over again tomorrow if I had to.


Mike, Jessie.

I love you both.
Thank you for Saturday.
May God smile on all of your days together.


ps (i miss you, jess.)

    You gave us an amazingly gorgeous wedding–I’m still a bit overwhelmed. Thank you so much! No matter where I live, I’d like to retain the title of “The Roommate.” Love you.
