a very special wedding

First of all, thanks to those of you who participated in my little guessing game. Yes, "getting to know you.." is a song from the King And I. It's one of my very favorite Rogers and Hammerstein classics, 7 Brides for 7 Brothers being right up there with it. So, Nancy, Jamaal, and even Margaret who thought the right answer, but didn't comment, get a big dose of cool points. Nice work!

This weekend Dave and I attended a very special wedding. For about four years, I've been taking care of a little girl named Lark. Lark's mom passed away when Lark was one years old, so starting when Lark was about three, I helped out her dad by taking care of her once a week. Lark is very near and dear to my heart and I hoped and prayed that God would bring her a mommy (and Tom a wife of course) and I'm so very thankful that my prayers were answered. This weekend Larks dad Tom married Lisa; a very sweet, spunky, wonderful woman who Lark happens to completely adore and we couldn't be happier for them. They had a beautiful out door ceremony at Minnehaha Falls and their reception was at the Sea Salt where I had the best crab cakes and scallops I've ever had. Ever. They were exceptional. Yum. Here are a few pics from the night.

Why do all of our pictures together look like this? Oh yeah, it's because my camera has a flip out screen and I'm addicted to taking self pictures, or however you would phrase that.

Here's the happy little family. Lisa looked stunning in a "golden age" of Hollywood type ensemble. If you look closely, you can see that even Barack made an appearance. These people have connections!
But in all seriousness, Tom and Lark (and now Lisa) are very special to me and to know that they have found love and happiness brings me so much joy. We simply couldn't be happier.
