free-wedding-clipart-jrtge68ilFriends, Readers, Countrypeople…

I may have mentioned once or 1,000 times: I’m getting married tomorrow.

I won’t be moderating comments for a few days, and the mailbox is temporarily closed.

If you’re on a first-name basis with the gods or the coven or robot wizards who control the weather, see what you can do about clear skies and good temperatures just north of Chicago for the next 48 hours.

Edited to Add: 

  • Weather was PERFECT. Thank you for your sacrifices.
  • Honeymoon’s in March.
  • Weddings =  I get the hype now. People who have known you for your whole life, at every stage, all together in one place, being sweet and hanging out and breaking bread.
  • Thanks for all the well-wishes.
