This weekend, I'll be watching my niece get married.
My beautiful niece, who's only eleven years younger than me and, back in the day, made quite the ex-boyfriend stalking buddy and Ice Ice Baby dancing pal, and now serves as my young, hip excuse to attend concerts I might otherwise be way too old for.
Since I was so young when she was born, I can barely remember my life without her in it, and I definitely wouldn't want to. She's one of the kindest souls I've ever known, and I swear her heart is so bright that she literally glows as if lit from within.
I had a dream last night that I was crying uncontrollably happy tears even before she walked down the aisle, so I'm hoping that I can keep a hold of myself for the real thing!
Ashley, I'm so excited to celebrate you and my soon to be nephew! I love you!
