My little/ big brother is engaged.
Yes, he is my little brother but he is also bigger than me and has been for most of my life.
He is getting married. At first my reaction was "what! no way he's my little brother!"

But he's found the right girl for him and it's the right time for them.
That's what's most important.

As a big/little sister this makes me feel old but I'm so happy for him and I know he's very lucky to have found Jenna.

I know what it's like to find that right person and to be so excited to start a life with them.
I strongly believe starting a life with someone doesn't mean your individual life is over, I believe marriage is about two distinct separate people that combine their own individual interests, ideas, perspectives on life together but still maintain their own goals, their own identity and sense of self. Sharing your life with someone is one of the greatest joys.

When you have found the right person and you believe this... marriage doesn't seem as scary, you don't feel you need to test it out first or use it as something to put off until you are older.

So congrats to all the newly engaged and married!

Minnehaha Falls

On a weekly walk through the neighborhood I can walk right past one of my favorite places.
It's nice to have a waterfall close to, almost, maybe, kind of... right out our backyard.
