Dearly Beloved

I’ll be away all afternoon to attend the wedding of a relative. I remember when the groom was a little kid; it was just the other day. Somehow, he’s now over thirty. Weird.

This is the first wedding I will have attended since Dymphna died. The first one in more than forty years where I’ve had to pick out a wedding gift and wrap it on my own. The first one where I’ll be putting on my suit without anyone to cast a critical eye on it, straighten my collar, and tell me how I look. Makes me a little nervous.

The festivities are relatively nearby, so I won’t be away overnight. I’ll be home in time to put up the news feed, but there may not be any additional posts today.
