Big Day

It’s a big day for the Lux and Winnard families and their many friends and admirers!  This baby is getting married:

Can you believe it?  A baby.  Getting married.

Technically, the baby is 29.  But she’ll always be my one and only baby sister.  The baby of whom I famously declared, “Nobody asked me if wanted a baby.”  And again, “Throw that baby  in the garbage!”

But later, I defended that little girl: “She’s only a baby.”

Now she’s a grown up, with a law career, a mortgage, and a man who, before the day is out, will be her husband.

And a sister who is full of love, joy, and pride.

Happy wedding day, Claire and Doug! For you,  I will try to stay at the reception until at least 10:45 PM.
