Since today is February 29th of a Leap Year, it only seems fitting that I should talk about weddings. Why, you say? Because folklore has it that this day was set aside by St. Patrick, back in Ireland in the 5th Century, for hopeful brides to declare their love and propose marriage to their intendeds. Turns out that St. Bridget had complained to St. Patrick that women had to wait forever for the proposals they were hoping to get. So he offered this one day, every FOUR YEARS, for brides to pop the question. Seriously?
Fast forward to 2012. I am not certain about who did the proposing, but this year we have the honor of being invited to several weddings, including those of our niece and also the children of some of our closest friends-most of whom we have known since they were toddlers. The weddings are being held on a city rooftop a Caribbean beach resort a yacht club and a rustic country barn All unique, as are the brides and grooms, but with one thing in common-love. We wish each and every one of them a lifetime of happiness.
