My name is Lanna and I've been really good this year. My mom and dad said that I should have written you sooner. They said that I should have gotten the letter to you before black Friday. I'm not sure what that means. It sounds scary to me and I told them that I don't think that you would be associated with black Friday because it sounds like something not good. And I know that you're really good. Say hello to Mrs. Claus for me. Tell Comet that I'll leave another carrot out for him like I did last year. I'm glad he liked it so much.

Dear Person who Found The RF by way of googling "pictures of hot men in kilts,"

Sometimes I feel the need to have to explain myself. I'm one of those who wants people to understand what I'm saying completely. When people ask "how are you doing?" I want to be able to tell them truthfully how I am with no frills or understatements. Moreover, when people ask me what God is doing in my life I want to be able to form into words what He's been teaching me. The past few weeks my words have failed me. At first I believed that my brain was just malfunctioning and soon it would come to an end. But even as I sat down with my journal I just couldn't form into words what had happened that day or the place where God had brought me. I would write and scratch through and try again. I even broke out the thesaurus in hopes of the return of my vocabulary. I began to read through Psalm and a verse that I had read many times stilled my mind, my head and my hand.

The wedding was...amazing. For those of you who didn't already know, it was a traditional Scottish wedding complete with Highland Dress (men in kilts are hot). I can honestly say that I've never witnessed a more beautiful wedding. Some photos will be coming soon, but for the most part the camera stayed away. I wanted to just enjoy time with Haley and not have to worry about capturing everything on camera. I was more involved in this wedding than any other that I've been in and now can say that the title of "Maid of Honor" is slightly stressful. But I wouldn't have wanted to be in any other spot. Haley had some family fly in from Scotland and I had the honor of being able to spend some time with them over the weekend and relish in their stories and accents. We also had the chance to steal away and hike through Hitchcock Woods. Aside from some friction with the Matron of Honor (or as I like to call it, Slapfest 2005 .:or:. Battle of the Bridesmaids), the weekend was relatively drama free. The ceremony took place at St. Thaddeus Episcopal Church and the reception followed at The Rye Patch. Just imagine bagpipes, lots of kilts (men in kilts are hot), a huge wedding gown, tears, imported flowers and herbs, laughter, pretty ladies in red dresses (that would be the bridesmaids), mouth-watering food, and dancing underneath the stars to the likes of Frank Sinatra and Eric Clapton. It was a fairytale wedding. And if you know Haley and Simon you know that a fairytale wedding is the only one that would suit them.

So, I'm about to hit the open road for Aiken, SC. Haley and Simon are getting married on Saturday and I'm off to do my duties as Maid of Honor. I'll be back on Sunday evening. I know you'll miss me, but you'll manage.

You can see pictures here. I would have posted a photo, but I couldn't make up my mind as to which I liked the best. BUT, if you insist...here a few of my favorites.
