The venue for this shindig has several party spaces. While we were celebrating in our area, some sort of polka fest was going on across the hall. The polka people caught wind of our party and stopped by offer congratulations. There were a lot of them, all dressed in their lederhosen, and the toast they offered up was punctuated with lots of singing and cheering. It was fabulous. and very fitting.

That afternoon, Walker and I gathered with my family to celebrate the marriage of my big brother Jeff and his bride, Stacey. Unfortunately, the weather threw them a curve with wind, fog, and rain shrouding their outdoor ceremony. No one got upset, though, they just said their vows a little faster and popped off to the luncheon a little early. Stacey is a breath of fresh air for our family, especially my little Diva, who welcomed her new step mother with open arms.
