This post is a little late, but we've been so busy since arriving back from PA almost two weeks ago! On July 24th, we had the honor of watching as my little sister, Elsa, and her long-time boyfriend, Isaac, tied the knot. This was Emily's second gig as flower girl, and she did a fantastic job. The wedding coordinator at the church said she's one of the best behaved girls she's ever had. Clearly she missed the tantrums that accompanied the obedient behavior, but overall, Emily did great! Thanks again to grandma Evonne for tagging along this weekend and watching Emily; it allowed the rest of us to really enjoy the weekend and cherish our family time together!
I also had the privilege of being the matron of honor, and making a toast at the reception. Here's part of the toast I gave to the happy couple:
In many ways, Elsa and Isaac are pretty similar. For example, they both have a flair for the dramatic, which can lead to some entertaining arguments. In other ways, though, they are exactly what the other needs. Isaac, I've never seen anyone that can make Elsa laugh and smile like you can. And Elsa, Isaac's affection for you is obvious, even in those moments when he seems to be utterly exasperated by you. Isaac, as you already know, Elsa is sensitive, caring, faithful, and extremely generous with her time and her love. I know that she'll always be there for you, and that in return, you will honor, respect, and love her right back. Please raise your glasses with me to the happy couple!
Congratulations Elsa and Isaac! We're so happy for you!
