This weekend my little sister pulled out all the stops for her wedding festivities on Long Island. For the main event, Lauren got to wear the dress we had made in Thailand, and courtesy of family courier services, my tuxedo and accouterments met me in New York. We had a great time, and I can’t believe it’s over already. As I write this, Ilene and Erik are en route to New Zealand for their honeymoon and Lauren and I get to babysit their apartment for the remaining few days of our stay in NY.
Congratulations Ilene and Erik!

This weekend in Miami we spent most of our non-wedding hours hanging out with Laura, Aaron, and our six-week old nephew Jadon. He’s adorable, good natured, and already gets along well with Dante (Laura and Aaron’s dog).

My stepbrother got married this weekend at a gala affair on Miami Beach. The whole family was in attendance, including the newest arrival. This was the fourth wedding of the seven step-siblings, with the remaining three coming in rapid succession later this year.
