So it's that time of the year again. Another wedding to go to! I'm very excited because next month my little cousin is getting married! I'm trying to find the perfect dress, shoes, purse etc. It's going to be a really special day :)
My cousin is a few years younger than me. She grew up right down the block and even though she was younger we always hung out. I used to babysit her and as she got older we became friends. I witnessed her courtship with her soon to be hubby since their summer romance began in her late teens.
It's so weird. I remember when my aunt brought her home from the hospital after she was born. I think her Dad was working the late shift so my aunt asked if I could spend the night at her place and help her take care of her new baby (this was before they moved down the block from us). I was young and couldn't really help but my aunt knew how excited I was about the new baby and I think she wanted the company. I remember how in awe I was of the tiny baby with all the hair. Now she's a grown woman getting ready to become someone's wife. It blows me away!
So to my beautiful, brilliant and sweet cousin... I love you lots and can't wait to see you walk down the aisle in your stunning dress and to hear you take those solemn vows as you embark on a new chapter in your life. I know we are all going to need lots of tissues that day because seeing you all grown up is going to make me really emotionally! But later on we will dance the night away at your reception and laugh as we always do :)
