Nate and Vanessa's Wedding

Happy newlyweds
Although Tim and I never had any kids, we do have plenty of amazing nephews and nieces, for which we are both exceedingly grateful. I love my sister Vicki's sons and daughter as if they were my own.

Last Saturday, my youngest nephew Nate married his long-time sweetheart Vanessa in Snohomish, WA, where Vicki and her husband Frank live. The ceremony was joyous—personalized vows from the heart (lots of happy tears!)—and the venue, Woodland Meadow Farms, magnificent. Never have I seen two people so truly belong together. We partied all weekend long (wienie roast, Friday night, in Vicki's beautiful backyard). What a wonderful celebration.

It was a beautiful wedding and the venue was amazing. Outdoors and trees everywhere. We were worried about rain, but it didn't start drizzling until 8PM, well after the ceremony. I bought red Converse tennis shoes, just in case it rained. But didn't have to wear them until the end when we were leaving.
