Anna & Steve

I will be wearing a tuxedo this Saturday. Appropriate attire indeed for a “best man!”

Saturday is my sister Anna’s wedding day and her fiancé asked me to be his best man. Cool beans right?

It’s a funny thing being the only brother in a family of girls whose dad died way too early in life. I always feel like I am supposed to keep an eye out for them like dad did and would have. When Jennifer starting dating her husband Paul I became good friends. I clicked with him (not that it mattered) immediately. He treats her right and makes her happy, the two things that are most important to me. And now he is going to be a Daddy! So awesome!

My sister Diane was lucky that my dad actually got to know Frank when they were first dating. My dad loved Frank. I love Frank. You would too, he is awesome.

Steve, my brother in law come Saturday, is a great guy and I love him already. Kind, funny, smart, geeky (in an awesomely cool way), laid back, warm, and friendly. But none of that matters.

All that matters is that my sister is happy and he that treats her right.

Check and Check.

My sister is the happiest I have ever seen her and she also seems so much more “herself” then she has been in the past. It’s the Anna I know and love who is chilled out most of the time but will put the smack down if needed.

I see them and they are already such great friends who laugh, play, and even go to church together which for my sister is a big thing.

So this Saturday at about 6:30PM, grab a hold of a drink somewhere and join me in toasting Anna and Steve.

“May their years together be many, their days joyful, and every minute together cherished.”

Chantix also known as Varenicline Tartrate, is a prescription medicine given to patients seeking to end their smoking addiction. Chantix operates without using any nicotine and helps in getting smoke free but nowadays some negative reviews stating suicide attempts by chantix consumers have raised a question on its efficacy.
