Kent and Hope Bass!

How do I even begin to fill you in on the exciting weekend we had in Virginia?! Kent, Kyle's middle brother, who I very much consider my brother, got married to Hope over the Labor Day weekend.  We left early on Friday morning to make the 15-ish hour drive to VA.  It was long, beautiful, and fun.  We love road trips and there was a lot of pretty mountain scenery.

Saturday morning, Hope's grandmother hosted a lovely bridal luncheon at a local country club.  All the ladies of the families as well as the bridesmaids were there.

That afternoon I stowed away with Loni (Kyle's youngest brother's girlfriend) to Haymarket, VA where Cousin Steph recently moved.  It was so cool that we were so close and that I was able to go see her!

The wedding rehearsal was Saturday night and the rehearsal dinner was lovely and intimate at Historic Jordan Springs.  Love was in the air and the excitement was palpable.

Sunday went by so quickly that it's hard to even reflect on it now.  The wedding and reception were lovely and everyone had a great time.

Two really wonderful things occurred to me over the weekend.  The first is that I am so happy Kyle, Kent, and Keith get along so well.  It is so rare to have in-laws who actually like each other.  It is even more rare to have in-laws who you like.  I am blessed with a great second family and I couldn't love Kent and Keith more if they were blood relatives.

The second wonderful thing that occurred to me is that I love their ladies!  So, not only do I have two great brothers, but now I have one great sister, and another I hope will be my sister in the near future.  Also, I don't think I need to restate how thankful I am for Kyle's parents, but I will.  I love them and think they are wonderful!  We always have so much fun together.  When I think ahead to family holidays and gatherings, I am so happy that I get to spend time with them.  From what I hear others say about their in-laws, I would say I am one lucky duck!

I am already missing them a lot and I wish they lived closer.

Some of you came here to see pictures from the weekend, not to hear me drone on about how much I love Kyle's family.  I don't want to disappoint, so here's what I've got!



I hope you all had an equally wonderful holiday weekend.  Congratulations Kent and Hope Bass!
