Married Away

I leave today for my sister's wedding, one that will span four cities (bachelorette party in Boston, MA; guests staying in Providence, RI; wedding & reception in Narrangansett, RI and rehearsal dinner in Jamestown, RI) and several driving direction catastrophes.

Some wedding trivia:

As my sister notes on her website, she and her husband, Arthur, will be the second Arthur & Grace pair in our family (my dad's parents were named Arthur and Grace).

My sister will wear a dress that will have been worn by three generations of our family -- my mom's mom, my mom's sister and now Grace. I will wear a dress from J.Crew that was nearly impossible to get until I threatened to write bad things about them.

My grandmother, Betty. We'll skip the veiled tiara, thanks.
My mom's sister, Janny.

The first time I met my sister's husband-to-be, in October 2005, we got trapped in an elevator in New York Skritty. FDNY had to pull all of us out of the top of the elevator.

My sister & me in the elevator, with the FDNY boots behind us.

My sister and I have a 'sister song,' stolen from the movie White Christmas called "Sisters, Sisters."
Those who've seen us
Know that not a thing could come between us
Many men have tried to split us up, but no one can
Lord help the mister who comes between me and my sister
And lord help the sister, who comes between me and my man!

Congratulations to Grace & Arthur 2.0. Upon my return, I'll try to, you know, write a blog or three.
