Congratulations and best wishes are being sent out from me, via this here blog, to my friend Laura who just told me Saturday that she's getting MARRIED! In less than TWO WEEKS! In AMERICA! She lives in Japan now with her man up near Tokyo. We worked together in Kyushu a few years ago.
It's been exciting chatting with her online about dresses and rings and stuff. They just picked out their rings today, and are having them engraved. Nice, eh?
(I've been assured it's NOT a "Shotgun Wedding," but'cha never know! Stay tuned for baby announcements!)
Long may you run (updated)
