Graduation Celebration Past, Wedding Extravaganza Ahead

So this is it. My little Markus Porkus graduated from high school. I mean, he is a college freshman in most official ways. My little brother? awesome. sigh. The time REALLY flies, it feels like just yesterday he was wrecking havoc on every youth group gathering and now he is one of the jr. high leaders! And if you met him, you'd know why. He's amazing. He always has been he's just expressing it more and more these days and its beautiful.

The ceremony was short and sweet and to the point and the party was my mom's, meaning it was amazing. The woman doesn't know how to throw a mediocre bash. And the cake, oh the cake, if you have never had one of Gloria Olson's cakes you need to get on the ball www.gloriousdesserts.com. The yum factor is overwhelming. If I ever have something relatively important to celebrate again I will be sure to order one of her cakes and invite you, you must try it...

Sissy's home too, teaching me a whole heck of a lot because. What the heck? I mean she knows more about history than anyone else I'm in contact with and she cares about the world deeply. She cares about people deeply, and I look so forward to sharing the summer with her and Mark.

Next week marks the beginning of Summer 2K5 Wild Wedding Weekends (allitteration is intentional) my sweet Lindsey Marie marries the dashing Marky Mark Meyers in 8 short days. and then 6 days after her the real live Diddy is taking himself a bride. Unbelieveable. These are two of my most dear college companions. It is wonderful to watch them in their joy and an honor to be with them as they enter into these beautiful covenants just like the roommmate did only months ago. But this isn't it. We'll take a break for July and then come August, get ready, for the Hewitt and Wickstra Weddings! I know, the mind reels there could me. I guess getting married is all the rage these days (wink). I always have been a few steps behind the times...

All my love to the marrieds and the almost marrieds... you are beautiful and your joy overflows and I love you.
