I know I'm a little late to the boat on this, but I'm going to jump at it and be a little sentimental. I've always been pretty good at sentiment and this occasion seems to call for it.

My sister has been my favorite person since the moment I was born. I was very lucky to have gotten an older sister like her, because I never was made to feel like a nuisance or like an annoying little sister. Instead, I got Denver, who has always been there for me in more ways than I can count, through the ups and downs that we've both had to deal with.

When I found out that she and Bash were together, my really eloquent response was, and I quote, "Oh, thank god". I wasn't trying to be mean, because I never would be, but I had always hoped that it would happen eventually. Even as friends, I could see how happy he made my sister and I've always known that she deserved that happiness in her life -- just as Bash deserved it, too. (Besides, I think we all know that Bash is a stand up guy and I'd have been lucky to get to call him my brother in any capacity.)

Anyway, just to wrap this string of consciousness up. I've always thought of the heart as an arrow, meaning that it needs to be aimed in order to land where it belongs. I think that your hearts have always been headed for one another and it brings me a lot of joy to see you there, both bringing so much happiness, contentment, and home to one another. I love you guys.

So apparently this has been causing ripples in the law enforcement world, but as a detective, I just want to say that I'm STILL laughing at this. I thought I'd share the humor here, because it is truly a blessing to have a sense of humor in this world of ours.

I don't say a lot on here because I'm not a very public person, but I think today calls for it. Today, I'm going to marry this man right here v v v



By the end of the day, I am going to be Mrs. Denver Kingswood. If you'd asked me exactly one year ago today if I could ever imagine that today would come, I would have laughed you off and told you that, no, of course I'd never marry Bash because we were too dumb to see what was right in front of our eyes. But I liked you the moment you asked me what kind of pizza I wanted, and I wanted you the moment I knew I realized that you were too good for the girl I used to be. And, Bash, I've loved you since the moment I saw you at the stables and knew how perfectly you could fit into the life I'd built for myself. You showed me how to live again. You took a broken girl and loved all of the broken pieces of her until, one day, I started to feel whole again. You've loved me at my worst and through my entire journey to be my best.

There's more to say, and I'm sure I'll try to say it in a few hours when I stand next to you while your best friend marries us, but I wanted to put this out there now before I get choked up and can't finish getting the words out.

I'd say that I can't wait to be yours forever, but I don't have to. I've been yours all along.

Hello all! Great news for you on a Thursday. The adoption papers are finalized, barring the final signatures of all relevant parties. You've always been one of us, Finn. Now we just made it legal.

I await your pleasure at the courthouse. ;)

My advice? Sign them and then have a family supper. Hell, sign them again in front of everybody. Get everyone involved. This is reason to celebrate.

FRIENDS & FAM
So I have three ties. Do I wear the blue one, the red stripey one, or the grey one?

I also need one of you to tie it for me. Or teach me how to tie it. They were always already tied before, but I was an idiot and untied them during prom prep. I looked at Youtube and I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be able to recreate any of this. So, yeah. Just throwing that out there.

I'm nervous about this. I shouldn't be nervous, right? I mean, it's not like

At the risk of sounding like my mother, the colors are starting and that makes me so very happy. The trees in the backyard are going this beautiful yellow and I can't wait for the oranges and reds to dot in there. I'm less excited for when they fall and I have to break out the rake.

Do you think we could swing a mini vacation? Just a long weekend somewhere? [...] I feel like I need a recharge.

ALEX, ANNIE, MIKHAIL, LUCY, EVAN, CASSIA, JILLIAN, ZOYA, ELIAS, LYRA, NICK, OCEANA (please lmk if I forgot anyone!!)
I know this is extremely late notice, but Bash and I would like to invite you to join us on Saturday, October 20 at Northwind Stables to celebrate the two of us getting married with dinner at Bash's our house afterward. You're welcome to bring a plus one, if you'd like, but we are intending to keep this very, very small, so we just ask that you let us know before you extend the invitation. We hope each of you can be there!

ALEX & ANNIE
Alex, we were wondering if maybe you could do one of those online certificate things where you get ordained and can marry us? If you're up for it.

And, Annie, we were hoping that you might be willing to make a bundt cake for our wedding cake? Again, I know it's last moment, so of course I'll help however I can, if you're willing to do it.

CASSIA & JILLIAN
I hope this is okay. I know we're still getting there, but the only dream I've really had about my wedding since before I even knew Bash existed was that I wanted you both there. Wherever we are with each other right now, I don't want to look back on the day and have any regrets. I'd regret it if I didn't tell you both that I want you there.

VIOLET
Hi! I was wondering if, perhaps, you'd be interested in and able to provide a couple of simple flower arrangements for a very, very small wedding (less than 20 people) on Saturday? And, regardless of the answer, you should come and bring your husband. If you want. It'll be at Northwind Stables.

EVAN
Don't be mad.

If your friend told you that they somehow stole their Professor's favorite grading pen and the sub sandwich he brought for lunch, would you advise them to:
a) Return the things and profusely apologize while hoping to not be failed
b) Trash the items and swear never to do it again
or
c) Eat the sandwich and start taking class notes with the pen which writes surprisingly well

Let’s hope Zoya sharing a name with Zoya doesn’t mean anything, though, because that could get awkward. )

If I didn't already have a costume for Halloween, this would be really useful. (I'd be a sarcastic bison.)

I've had access to this network since forever, but I never actually got around to logging in and using it. I decided I wanted to use it and I had no idea what to actually post for my first blog or entry or whatever it is the kids are calling it these days so here you go. Cut for image! )

Quality content for you all. You're welcome, Dunhaven.

So, good news. GRE scores came back! Everything's good enough. I hope. God, I ho Now I'm on to the next steps of 1) getting letters of recommendation and 2) filling out applications. This part will all be done by Christmas, and then we wait more and I plan a 'congratulations Brynn' vacation to myself.

That or it'll be a 'I'm the worst and this is meant to take my mind off it' trip, but fingers crossed for the former.

I will start taking destination suggestions, starting... now.

We can get victory over even the most insurmountable task with a fresh, succinct and bulleted list. That's how I got through moving half-way across the country (Iowa is half-way, you can't tell me any differently), got through my MFA and made it back home again.

That's how things work in the Craig household. We have a step-by-step list for getting through the day.

And because I want to keep getting through the day, I need to do a list for you. I've been reading through your old entries. I know you're having dreams. I know some of you are talking about them. I know that you are pretty sure these dreams have something to do with another existence, maybe even one you thought was fiction, and it isn't just fanciful creativity.

I'm having them too and they're keeping me up, they're sapping my attention, they're eating at me from the inside and it's because I'm completely and utterly alone. So, if you could help me cross this off my list, that would be grand.

Who knows Lily Evans? Or, rather, Lily Potter. She and I are sharing some brainwaves.
