Holly gets hitched

Holly Ann Reed  [Holly Lavaughn Elder] + Richard Ross-Roth

Married  ♥  12 March 2015  ♥  Coolidge, AZ

You may now kiss the bride!

You may now kiss the bride.

My sister-in-law tied the knot Thursday in her hometown.  Holly deserves the absolute best in a husband.  Richard gained an incredible woman as his wife.  These two clearly love each other.  I see him as her rock– as that comforts me.  Few people deserve a happily ever after more than my little sister.

Although physically absent from the ceremony I was there in spirit.  Living across the country from loved ones sucks.  Plane tickets [the only feasible option for travel without the kids] cost money I simply don’t have.  Missing special occasions makes me sad.

Mr. & Mrs. Ross-Roth

Once upon a time Holly and I were extremely close.  Not only did we speak daily and share confidences but we just understood each other.  Yet we’ve drifted.  I can’t stand it.  I really miss her and want our friendship restored to its former glory.  And I know Will wishes he could change things…

Forgive me for deviating from the joyful, celebratory post I intended to write.

Holly and Richard, I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness.  Congratulations on your marriage.  I’m thrilled for you both.  May I suggest a Tennessee honeymoon sometime in the near future?  😉

With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,
