Today, my sister Natalie is getting married. It’s my first sibling to get married, and I’m finding myself a whole lot more of a sap than I expected I’d be. Cried while redesigning her wedding programs. Cried while writing her processional score. Cried while watching the photo-montage.

The only thing that keeps me smiling? The fact that my brother-in-law-to-be has the same name as a famous cult leader. Joseph Smith.

(What were his parents thinking?)

As to today’s Red Sox header, this may be the only time you ever see it on my website. Ever. Forever. Anytime. You see, Joe (Red Sox) and Nat (almost married Derek Jeter), got me and my father tickets to see a Yankee’s game in July as our bridal party gift. And they tell me it was Joe’s idea. (I also got a custom #10 t-shirt with “Bubba” on the back; picture below). Yeah, you’re pretty cool Joe. Here’s the Red Sox in your honor.

Congratulations you two. Jennifer and I adore you both and feel so honored to be your friends, not just family. Enjoy your day. ch:

Congrats man! I’ll probably cry when my baby sis gets married. But only if her guy passes my brutal self-tests. I haven’t actually worked them out yet, but they’re gonna be brutal. LOL! Glad you had a good time!! 🙂
