It’s not easy getting five people in three different time zones together in one place at one time, even in a virtual world. But today, Maddie, Mandy, Aqua, Jessy and I did it. Four of my sisters and I finally managed to do what we’ve been wanting to do for weeks, if not months. These aren’t nearly all of my sisters, but it’s the most we’ve gotten together, so we grabbed the opportunity to take our photos.
It was a logistical nightmare, but we didn’t stop laughing the entire hour and a half we spent together. Pose props were uncooperative, hair was in armpits, faces and crotches, heads were swiveling and bobbing, avatars were facing the wrong direction, shoes were put on noob feet and taken off again…pure chaos. And pure fun.
I wouldn’t trade these women I call my sisters for the world.
I met Marnie and Bret not long after they got together in 2011. Marnie is bright and outspoken; Bret is a country boy who speaks only when he has something important to say. Or to “grrr” or “mhm”. I have always loved them as a couple – the perfect counterpoint to one another.
But, as many relationships go, they broke up. And got back together again. And broke up. And got back together again.
This time, however, they’ve sealed their commitment. In fact, when Bret asked Marnie to marry him, he wanted to do it in a week. Maybe he’s just impatient, or maybe he finally realised he’d found the woman he was destined to spend his life with and wanted to make sure they created their happiness right away.
With a country-themed wedding, blended with elegance and style, it suited them perfectly. I’m not going to say anything else – I’m just going to let the pictures speak for themselves. You can click the photos to see larger images.
He loves her more than Dr Pepper and pizza and she loves him more than shoe shopping and vanilla cake. What better foundation on which to build a life together?
