A Marriage Toast

The divine Emily Evans Eerdmans has gotten hitched and a chorus of best wishes is resounding through the blogosphere. Just look at this photo...could they be any cuter? I think not.
(Emily Evans Eerdmans and Andrew McKeon)

Were I asked to wax poetic, I would borrow the words of George Eliot who wrote so beautifully about marriage in "Words on Feeling Safe":

Oh the comfort of feeling safe
with a person;
having neither to weigh thoughts,
nor measure words,
but to pour them all out
just as they are,
chaff and grain together,
certain that a faithful hand
will take and sift them,
keeping what is worth keeping
and with a breath of kindness,
blow the rest away.

Otherwise, I would quote Rita Rudner:

I love being married. It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.

Congratulations, Emily and Andrew!

Congratulations to the married couple. What a lovely couple. I'm sorry I'm slightly behind with catching up your posts as I've been awfully busy with curating an exhibition at the moment. Will catch up soon xxx
