I'd be willing to guess that I've been to more weddings than the average 20-year-old, and within the next month, I'll have added two to my tally.
As you all well know, my best friend is Mary Elizabeth Taylor (or Merl, as most of us know and love her), and this past weekend her sister Kathryn tied the knot.
I was lucky enough to attend and every detail, from the bridemaid's bouquets to the comfort food buffets, was just as beautiful as the blushing bride herself.
I felt like an even bigger part of the big day as I got to proudly proclaim this statement piece at the entryway my own sister's work, as you've seen here and here before.
The atmosphere of wedding bliss inevitably stirred up sentimentality about my own brother's wedding less than a month away.
My last sibling got married not long after I received a license to drive, so my maturing since then coupled with the significant portion of my life I've shared with Andy, has made this event particularly emotional.
While I was in town for the last week of break, my mom let me have a hand in planning the rehearsal dinner, like picking the blush and copper invitations customized with another one of Erin's artistic talents, calligraphy.
Meanwhile, I assisted with hosting duties for the couples shower for Andy and Kirby just before my departure.
Congratulations again to the new Mr. & Mrs. Dean; counting down the days, Andy & Kirb!
