It’s officially wedding week in our household! I thought this blessed event should be commemorated in a special way, so for the next few days I will be doing a series of interviews of various members of the family. Given the nature of this slightly dysfunctional, but entirely charming clan, this should be fairly entertaining.
Day one: Sister Anna
Me: How do you feel about your little brother getting married?
Anna: (My gosh, I can’t do this…. sniff, sniff) I feel sad that it’s the last wedding because I really like these parties. I’m excited to see the culmination of five years of them getting to know each other and learning to love each other well.
Me: What are you most looking forward to on Saturday?
Anna: Babysitters. Also, the crying during the father/daughter dance, and the laughing during the mother/son dance.
Me: Where do you see the newly married couple in 10 years?
Anna: In their new hand-crafted house, built by Jake……with a baby, maybe two…..continuing to pursue the things they love.
Me: What are three words that describe your relationship with Jake?
Anna: Spontaneous (free tote!), loving (nook me), and open and honest (brother-sister time on the roof).
Um…I think these are inside jokes….half the time I have no idea what these two are talking about.
Me: That was four words, Anna.
