Twelve years ago when TechyDad and I were married, we were blessed that almost all of our cousins from near and far were able to make it to our wedding. Looking back at the pictures, it is hard to believe how everyone has changed.
Now, we are all adults. Not only do TechyDad and I have two children, my brother is also married with two kids of his own. Two of my California cousins have also gotten married and have their own children. Then last year, the first cousin on my paternal side of the family was married and we were not able to make it to his wedding. Then news came that another cousin would be getting married and his wedding would be in Israel. It’s hard to admit that I knew immediately that we would not be able to go. Not only is the trip a long one, it is a very expensive one. In addition to this, the wedding will be right before the start of the school year. Right now I sit at home thinking about my family in Israel getting ready to celebrate with Cousin H.
Mazel Tov to Cousin H and your beautiful bride. May your wedding day be the start of many years of wonderful memories in your life together.
