Love is still in the air

Sometimes it feels like Brian and Katie have been together since the beginning of time. Then reality sets in and I realize they have only been together a few years. Today is their 2nd wedding anniversary.

Brian is not only one of my brothers but also one of my best friends. I don't know what I would do without him. He is sometimes my voice of reason and always the first to cheer me on in something. He's strong and protective yet lets me live my own life and supports me in everything. I love that we work together. I love seeing him as a husband and I am so proud of the way he treats Katie. His love for her is unconditional and he's still so head-over-heels for her. Seeing him with his daughter brings tears to my eyes every time. I love seeing him so happy.

Katie is a sister that I have always wanted. We became instant friends. She's beautiful, sweet, smart and really funny. She makes Brian happier than he has ever been. She's creative, loving and a fantastic mom. I know I can go to her about anything. She's so supportive and gives me good advice. I love that she loves Brian with her whole heart and it shows every day. Seeing her as a mom brings me so much joy! She sometimes dowbts herself but I see a strength in her that very few people have. She has overcome much in her life and it has only made her a better person. I enjoy our coffee dates or going out to lunch when we have a chance. Her little quirks like falling asleep during (every) movie or rinsing each dish for 5min makes her unique and even more fun.

When Brian called from Ione and told me he met a girl while at the academy, I thought he was crazy. Part of me wanted to fly up there, smack him upside the head then fly home. :) While he was on break from the academy he came home and Katie flew down to San Diego to visit. The moment I met her all of my reservations went right out the window. She fit in with the family instantly!

Brian, Katie, cousin Julie and I went to Disneyland while Katie was visiting and we had a great time. While Brian and I were walking out of the ride "Indiana Jones", he put his arm around me pointed to Katie ,who was a ways infront of us, and said "well what do you think?" I told him I loved her. She was already like a sister and I had only know her for a few weeks. He said what I thought mattered a lot to him.

Their wedding was beautiful. It was a sunny day and everything went off without a hitch. Katie had a good time relaxing and getting pampered while I put Brian and his guys to work in the reception hall. I couldn't look at Brian when I was walking down the aisle. If I did I knew I would become a crying mess. After all the heartache he had endured, he was finally happy. Happier than I have ever seen! Katie was stunning as she walked the the aisle. Her smile was huge! She looked at Brian like they were the only two people in the room. I couldn't contain the tears any longer. I was so excited and happy for them.

Now two years later the love in their eyes hasn't faded, not one bit. In fact I think it has grown even stronger. I love seeing them as a couple. They are amazing parents and I enjoy sitting back and watching them together.

Brian, thank you for giving Katie a chance even when you were going through a very tough time. She's an incredible person. You are a great example of what a husband should be. Continue to cherish her daily.

Katie, thank you for making my brother so happy and for being not just a sister-in-law but a sister. You are a fantastic wife and I have so much love and respect for you.
I love you both so much. More than words can say. Your lives and marriage have shown me that true love does exist. Happy 2nd Anniversary!

Ok. So...here I sit, blubbering like a typical mom who knows that all of her children are the BEST people in the world. But, I'm not biased or anything like that :)

Thank you Sis, for your beautiful homage to your brother and sister-in-law. I couldn't have said it better myself. I love you.
