Wedding Day

Today I'll be officiating my 4th wedding. Well, not MY 4th wedding. I haven't been married once, let alone three times. But I'll be leading the ceremony. The first two weddings I did were family weddings. I married my sister and then my cousin (again, don't misunderstand). This Summer I led my first non-family wedding when I officiated for a couple that attends my small group. It was an outside ceremony at the beach. Very nice. Today's wedding will be pretty big since it's the pastor's daughter getting married.

Despite the busyness of the week, I managed, Thursday night, to end my 4 year run of singleness. My favorite friend has, at minimal financial cost to me, agreed to be my girlfriend. Her name is Katie and she's a caligraphy enthusiast with a slight overbite and hair the color of strained peaches. I'm quite excited and also interested to see what kind of reaction (or lack thereof) this will produce amongst the congregation (though, I'm sure, many saw this coming).

:) Have to say I was shocked and appalled to see you describe your new girlfriend as having "a slight overbite and hair the color of strained peaches." Then AJ informed me that it's a quote from a Wierd Al song...and I was no longer shocked or appalled. :) Congratulations.
