It's My Honor

I logged onto Facebook this morning to find a message from my sister. Since I've moved and haven't set up a phone line yet it's normal for me to communicate with my siblings this way most of the time. I clicked on it thinking it would probably be some info about coconut as my sister has recently discovered a new allergy. Instead I was moved to tears.

She is thinking of getting married this summer in our hometown and has asked me if I would be the Maid of Honor. I am so touched! My sister and I were very close when I was younger but have had some rough patches over the years. She also has two other sisters from her fathers side. So I was super taken aback that she chose me. It really means a lot. 

Of course I replied yes right away and have put in a request to throw a bridal shower/bachelorette for her. She didn't do either of these things for her previous marriage but I'm hoping she'll let me plan something this time. I really want to do something extra special for her. 

She is having a very simple ceremony and I'm ready to help her put it together. I've already sent her a bunch of links because I've been looking into something similar for BF and I. This is so exciting. I can't wait for my visit home in the summer!


Update: She's getting married next summer, not this one. I sent her a bazillion links to which she sweetly replied that maybe I could calm down a little since it's over a year away. LoL. I was hoping to do something similar next summer so we'll have to see how things go. I don't want to step on any toes. 


  1. Awww.. that's wonderful! Congratulations to your sister!! :)

    Congrats to your sister. I'm sure you'll make a wonderful Maid of Honour as well. ;)
