My brother got married yesterday!
(OK, full disclosure, he gets married next Sunday as I write this, but yesterday as it’s published. I didn’t think that writing a blog post mid-ceremony was a great way of being a wedding guest.)
I’m sure it was an amazing party and a beautiful ceremony. I’m sure the kiddo only ruined it a little bit.
I’m so excited to see my new sister-in-law and meet her extended family. I’m so glad she’s joining our family and look forward to having her join us on all our reunions and holidays over the years. She’s a delight!
And, yes, before you ask, the blanket is still unfinished. Don’t worry, y’all will be the first to see it when it’s done. (Don’t judge.)
Anyway, let’s celebrate love! And marriage! And my brother and his WIFE! (That sounds weird, but I like it.) You know how we celebrate around here- by looking at knitting patterns that we’ll never have time to actually work up.
Though, if time is an issue, I could always just make this teeny little pair.

But it’s a wedding! A time of celebration! Excess! Exuberant over-reaching! I gotta make a whole cake!

Or, I could just go totally twee and adorable, and knit up some super cute little critters. (I mean, really. Look at those tiny little flowers!!)

Congrats to my brother! And welcome to the family, Sister-in-Law! We’re so excited to have you!
Are you going to any weddings this summer?
No weddings for me this summer, but my brother got married in October 2017 and I still remember it like it was yesterday. Since I’m not married myself, it was my first time gaining in-laws, and while I’m still getting used to the idea of in-laws nearly two years after they got married (although they were together for about 2-3 years and had a daughter together before they got married; they’ve since had another daughter), I’m glad I have a good, cordial relationship with mine. I don’t get to see them a whole lot, but we all get along pretty nicely. (In my case, I have two sisters-in-law, my brother’s wife and her sister; and through her sister I also have a nephew.)
Congratulations to your family, and I hope you and your new in-laws get along well!
