Among the good things, there was my good friend Helen's wedding. With complicated circumstances, we couldn't make it - this was one of my big disappointments this year.
Helen was Randy's printmaking student in Boston & that's how I got to know her. She's one of the nicest people I know. If you could ever humanize the words good, kind, and thoughtful that'd be her - well, at least for me it is. She is a good girl, and what's more, her egg salad sandwich is really good.
I had her invitation up on my fridge for a long time because it was one of the most special mails I've received. It was all hand-screenprinted by her (she's a hard worker, too!). It spoke her language in every way. Randy looked at the cards and said, "I don't wanna mail back this RSVP. It's too nice. Just make a copy and send that back!"
I imagine her wedding was as beautiful & sunny as she is.
|Congratulations, Helen & Chris!|
