It's Really Happening

My little, teeny, tiny brother is getting married. This October. You know, the same kid that I paid a dollar to diligently clean my room or car. The one that wrote me adorable poems as I went off to college. And the only boy I truly felt comfortable sharing my life’s secrets with over hotdogs and Cheetos.

Now he’s almost 27 or something like that…

and he’s definitely not falling for that dollar trick anymore…that’s for sure.

The fabulous thing? He’s marrying an AMAZING girl. A southern bell. A gal I can’t wait to call my sister.

Needless to say, they need a family soiree thrown by me and the mister. Ok, well, me…but his name can go on the invite because it is, after all, a “his and her” event.

So let the planning begin!

Think black and white theme with touches of lime green. Fresh flowers for the May date. A room filled with glowing faces near tables of appetizers filled with all the things they love. D├ęcor that shows off their amazing taste and sentiment. And of course a playlist you can shake your rump to. With a few surprises along the way.

It’s going to be a darn good event, and one we’re crossing our fingers we hope they enjoy. Low-key, family-filled and complete with joy.

Because, after all, this is really happening…
