I've been working on last night's post for weeks, now, and had more edits and additions in mind for it (like photos) but ultimately published it as-is when I realized that it was 11 :55 pm and I was about to let a day go by without posting. I'm not sure why I'm so insistent on posting each and every day; I suppose it's because I often fear that my momentum is all that's keeping me going, and I don't want to lose it. And so, here I sit, desperately hammering out a blurb on the touch-screen of my smartphone as Tom drives us home from our weekend in New York/New Jersey, where we attend cousin Ed and Alyssa's beautiful wedding and related celebrations. We're not likely to be home until sometime after midnight at this point, and I don't want to let the day slip by.
However, being confined to a touch-screen device with a very limited viewing space makes for a frustrating writing experience, so I'll be brief. I mainly wanted to report that it's been a crazy, exhausting weekend, but one overflowing with love, joy, and family. So worth it, every time.
Congratulations Alyssa and Ed! Here's wishing you a whole lifetime of such happiness.
