A Wedding Present
A few months ago I had a *brilliant* idea to encourage my sister and her husband to start having a family by buying them a cute and cuddly baby outfit. Kristi and Shane are NOT pregnant. Every few weeks I provide them with another outfit to add to their collection. It's been a funny joke and will hopefully get me some nieces and nephews in the not-to-far future ; ) .... no pressure....
Well, this weekend I was away photographing a wedding and when I got back I got together with Kristi and Shane. Ironically and surprisingly, we both had a gifts for one another. So we exchanged our gifts and this is what we got:
Kristi and Shane received two pink little outfits. Super cute. Cute enough that Kristi decided she wanted to wear them. However, they're about 23.5 years too small.
I received a lovely wedding present! My first one, actually. I am NOT engaged. I am not dating anyone. The present was a picture frame with this written on it: "Wedding is a magical celebration of love, formally uniting two people whose hearts are already bound as one. Sharing wishes and dreams, the bride and groom seal with a kiss their pledge for the future."
I think they'd call that "pay back". So, my wedding present collection has officially started. I am the first one in my house of three other women (two dating) who has received a wedding present. So funny! I laughed hysterically! Only in my family do we give gifts before the celebrations actually begin.
Cheers to weddings and babies ... even before they happen!
And thank you, Joyska, for your brilliant idea.
