It's Monday! And they lived happily ever after...

Since my first post back in 2011 my best friend eBeth has shown up in my posts here and there. What I never told you all, for reasons I'm really not sure... I'm absent minded and easily distracted, and.... where was I? ;) Anyways, what I never told you all was that back last February she and my brother started courting... a match I had been making for years and they had finally come around to realize I was right. ;) Last November for Thanksgiving my brother went up to North Carolina with her to meet some of her extended family and there underneath a waterfall he proposed to her. :)))))))))))))
This last Saturday they were married! Naturally I was one of the bridesmaids and I'm pretty positive that besides them I was the one beaming the most! :) It was an absolutely beautiful ceremony. We were incredibly blessed to have lots of family come.
I am so excited for their marriage and new life together. I love them both so much and I know that they will be very happy together. Finally I can officially call eBeth what I've always called her anyways... my sister. ;)

And in lesser thought (just this once).... reading.... ;)

  4. This post was a funny surprise! (Because an old post I was going to comment on.)

    I didn't know you were also in the "matchmaking business." ;-)

    1. Oh yes! I love to matchmake left and right. :) If I can't find a match myself I'll make one for everyone else. ;)

  5. How awesome! Are you renaming yourself Emma Woodhouse now? Lol. That's very cool, though, to have a friend marry into your family :-D Congrats to them and you!

    1. Emma as far as matchmaking... I don't think I'm like her in any other way... maybe I'm in denial? ;)
      Thank you!
