They walked hand in hand as the breeze danced through her red hair, her skirt blowing behind her while they stepped over the tall grass. As she looked at her feet and carefully tip toed around rocks, he kept his eyes locked on her. Pretty much the entire time we were there. And she could feel his gaze, and it made her smile bigger than I’ve ever seen, and that made my heart so happy.
When I married Jerrin, I knew I would be gaining a younger sister, but I never thought I would be getting a best friend. I have known Janessa since she was sixteen, and I saw her learn to drive, graduate high school, become an adult, turn twenty one, and so much more. I was there for the birth of both of her children, and we’ve laughed and cried together more times than I can count. You can imagine my skepticism when she brought Stuart home for the first time to meet the family, and I hoped that he would be everything she ever wanted in a partner. I can honestly say he is so much more. I’ve always known that he was the perfect match for her, but I think I truly realized it the moment I saw him become a father. The way he cares and treats his little family is such a testament to the husband he will be, and I know that will never, ever change. There are no words to describe how much these two mean to me, and I can’t wait to stand next to them at the altar this year as they say their vows. I could go on and on about how much I love them, and how in love they really are, but I need to save some of that for my Maid of Honor speech! So I’ll just say, congratulations to two of my favorite people in the world. I love you guys so much and I’m so incredibly elated that you’ve found each other. Cheers to this incredible time in your lives and #adiosjaramillo!
