Kevin eloquently introduced his two attendants and now I’ll take the opportunity to tell you a bit about the two friends I have asked to stand up for me at our wedding. I blessed with many, many lovely friends, but these two have made my Minnesota years extra sweet. We’ve celebrated milestones together and cried on each others shoulders’. Plus Jenny and Phil are already friends themselves.
Jenny and I met through my Colorado cousin, Holly. I met her at Holly’s wedding in Denver only to find out we lived close together. I think Jenny is the nicest present Holly ever gave me. She is a phenomenal wife to Rick and mother to Ellie and Spencer. Jenny’s secret superhero talent is her uncanny sense of retail. I love shopping with her.
Phil and I have worked together at the library for six years. We eat lunch together or have coffee just about every weekday. He is my touchstone and a great dad and husband to Mimi, Claudia, and Kimberly. Phil’s secret superhero is his ability to make me laugh or calm down or both.
