Today marks 30 years since I was in my first wedding. The wedding of Donna Dear and Bill!
How exciting it was to get all dressed up in a dress made just for me. How fun it was to dance the night away with my aunts and uncles. How special I felt… and it wasn’t even my day!
Over the past 30 years I have spent a lot of time with Donna and Bill. They’ve been my babysitter. I’ve gone on vacations with them. I’ve babysat their two girls. I’ve had dinner with them too many times to count. I’ve sat on their couch just because I didn’t want to go home. I even went into lock down with them when Covid hit.
Over the years, Donna and Bill have shown me that opposites do make fantastic couples. They’ve shown me how to go with the flow and compromise. How to embrace each other’s quirks. How to give each other personal space. How to communicate. How to be there for each other in good times and bad. But most of all they’ve shown me how to embrace family, your own and in-laws alike.
So, Donna Dear and Bill… cheers to you and another 30 years of happiness!
