The Wedding.

Seven years ago I was just getting to know this girl.

Third floor.

Next door neighbors.

One of the first things I remember about Abbie was that she made me a "Good Luck" card for a tennis tournament I went to.

Abbie's family in Rolling Meadows, IL became my family away from home. I even lived in their home for awhile one year. I learned real quick what it's like to have four brothers!

Our second year of school we were roommates and we had a blast living together. (Even though she tells me I gave her a fair share of heart attacks and worries over that year. It was well worth it, I think.)

When I moved back to Minnesota, it was Abbie who encouraged me and told me to do what was best for me and though our friendship moved 300 miles apart, we still remained close friends.

Talking, e-mailing, visiting. To this day, Abbie will even attest to that fact that we talk almost daily.
I know that Abbie has provided so much to me in our friendship. A mind to bounce ideas off of, a shoulder to cry on and a friend to laugh with.

She stood up at my wedding just a few years ago.
J, S, Abbie and Chris. 04.17.04
Chris, Abbie, S and J. 09.01.07

So it was only natural that I would do the same for her.

Congratulations Abbilou and Chris.

Miss M. and I. No she wasn't a flower girl. She wore her dress from the father/daughter dance last winter and got her hair done. Probably the best $20 spent over the weekend.
The wedding party (plus M, the psuedo wedding party member) taking a trolley to the dinner reception.

M and I with Julie. So thankful to have spent some time with her. Love the relationship her and I share though we never were in Chicago at the same time.
College friends. Sarah, Julie, Abbie, me, Alicen and Jen.

Yes, I love weddings...I admit that if I see a wedding party in a park, in front of a church or wherever that I will pull over just to savor the happiness exuding
from the wedding couple and guests.

So, I was awaiting this post, knowing you would get to it. It looks wonderful! And happy! And special!Thanks for sharing it.

Miss M looks radiant, too. I love that she got her hair done and wore a special party dress. She'll remember this forever. You are doing just a great job as Mother to all! And as friend to Abbie, wife to J, daughter to Mumsy and Daddio...the list goes on.

I love your matching outfits again. And when you talk to Abbie, let her know that she looks beautiful and radiant in the pictures.
You and M don't look to bad yourselves.
Love you.
