Do you ever listen to a song and just cry? I do..... this one:

This Bonnie Rait cover is UH-MAZING.. Thank you Bon Iver.

Turn down the lights
Turn down the bed.
Turn down these voices
Inside my head.

Lay down with me;
Tell me no lies.
Just hold me close;
Don't patronize.

Don't patronize me.

'Cuz I can't make you love me
If you don't.
You can't make your heart feel
Something it won't.
Here in the dark
In these final hours,
I will lay down my heart
And I'll feel the power;
But you won't.
No, you won't.
'Cuz I can't make you love me
If you don't.

I'll close my eyes,
Then I won't see
The love you don't feel
When you're holding me.

Morning will come,
And I'll do what's right;
Just give me till then
To give up this fight.

And I will give up this fight.

Start spreading the news.....

My little brother is getting married!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Once upon a time.....

This cute boy moved to Alaska to work for the summer....

... he met the coolest chick there.... Kendra!

They had mutual friends and hung out in Skagway on occasion.

They moved home at the end of the summer and went their separate ways. A few years later they reconnected and well... the rest is HISTORY!!

They are both straight up RAD individuals with hearts of solid gold. They LOVE the outdoors, traveling, GREAT music, hanging out with their families, finding the simple joys in life, serving others, and going on lots of adventures together. (also, they are hippies at heart!!)

I think I might like hanging out with Kendra just as much as Casey does - maybe more?!! ha

Always a party with this girl around!! I especially love when she comes to have sleepovers with me when Casey is gone. Cooking breakfast burritos @ 2am, laughing, crying, organizing a dance off to the Ramones, moving into my new apartment (she SAVED me this day), trying to maneuver our heavy/awkward carts around IKEA, sharing our Jimmy Johns whenever we go, oh I could go on... I really lucked out in the sister-in-law department!!

Casey and Kendra go together like peanut butter and jelly! They are BEYOND lucky to have each other. So thrilled for the two of them to start their big adventure TOGETHER :) Cheers to the happy couple!
