I like it when siblings get married, because each new spouse brings with her/him an entire little village of people that I get to know and see at family celebrations, and usually the two-degrees-of-separation people are all exceptionally cool. At least that's how it has worked with all the spouses my siblings and Steve's siblings have chosen thus far. (Pressure's on for you, Austin, to marry a girl with fantastic people.) Lots and lots of happening people--yea, bloggers-- that I encounter just happen to be sisters-in-law of sisters-in-law, or something like that. I love it! If I weren't such a lazy blogger, I would link to many of them. But I'm lazy, so I'll just mention a few. There's NieNie, whom I like to think about when crazy people I know try to tell me that my children will not be normal if I raise them in Provo. Hello!? Nie Nie grew up there and is beyond normal! There's her best friend Reachel, who is the nicest and most fashionably lovely girl I may ever meet -- also a sister-in-law of a sister-in-law. There's the delightful Alice, whom I'd like to book to sing at my funeral. (Are you available, Alice?) There's Wendy from flippinsweet who has the most beautiful and inspiring family, and don't ever sit behind them in church if you want your own kids to look as though they're well-behaved -- they'll skunk you in the well-behaved department. She's the sister of a brother-in-law. Also Debi, with whom I grew up. She is the brave mother of six boys and the sister-in-law of a brother-in-law. There's my dear Eliza from trestresbon who may as well be a member of my family, but is the sister of a sister-in-law. There are more, but you get the idea. That was awfully lazy of me, wasn't it, to not link to them. Sorry.
Anyway, that was a loquacious way to get to the point of this post, which is that Liz, the lovely sister-in-law of my brother-in-law, was very very kind and made me a few headers for my blog. They are awesome. However, I cannot for the life of me get the images to load to my customizable template, so I can't use them. Yet. So I'm posting them here so her efforts were not all in vain, and I will figure it out soon. It's probably a browser thing. Thank you, Liz -- so much!
