There's going to be a wedding, and there is almost a date. We're thinking the 30th of May in Atlanta. The fun begins! Emily and Ryan are excited to have plans that will be exactly what they want. Both families are happy that we'll be able to attend. It sounds like a lot of fun, informal and spontaneous. Right now, Em and I are talking as fast as we can, and neither one of us is listening to the other. Me: You're not wearing a VEIL?" Em: "I KNEW you were going to be disappointed in everything." There will probably be more than one of those exchanges in the next 3 months. But so far, it's just hurry and get this done and hurry and do this. Elise has been put in charge of invitation/announcement do's and don't's. I'm going to meet Emily in Atlanta (don't see this, Mike) Saturday. Her friend Karen and her mother have generously offered to do the flowers, and we're going to spend the day with them planning that and getting some more things taken care of. The house where the wedding is going to be belongs to a friend's parents, and we'll go by there and look around. It's amazing how things started falling into place all of a sudden and how generous people are to offer the use of their home and offer to spend hours making flower arrangements. She has some special friends for sure.
