Another Wedding!!
February 2005

A little background here: My older sister, Vicki, and I are 21 months apart! We had our first babies 2 1/2 months apart. Our kids grew up together and have always been very close cousins! When Vicki's oldest daughter, J, decided to get married to N, we were all very excited! She fell in love with N while doing a DTS (discipleship training) with YWAM (youth with a mission) in Seattle, Washington! He has been a God-send to J in many ways! Anyway, back to the wedding. In September of 2004, J and her mom, Vicki (my sister) came to my house to spend the day. We all went wedding dress shopping together. I took my camera and took pictures of J trying on her wedding dress and included Vicki in the pictures. So glad I did.Tragically, Vicki died of a massive heart attack, just a few weeks later. As we mourned her death, we planned J and N's wedding. It was very bittersweet.

J had always wanted fresh tulips in her wedding...and she got what she always wanted! The tulips were beautiful! She had them on her cake........
........and her bouquets were FULL of them!!

The bride and groom. First dance as husband and wife!We are all so proud of J and N! And now they have M and J....... that's a post for another time!!!
