Guys, my sweet sister-in-law just posted this beautiful post about marriage on her blog. Such a wonderful reminder. She links to an article by Tim Keller called “You Never Marry the Right Person” which is a must-read. Anyway, please read her post. It’s lovely.
Also, last night John and I went to a dinner thing where one woman had made some rice pudding with maple syrup that had been tapped and boiled down within about half a mile of the place where we were eating. She also made it with bourbon, and I nearly broke down in tears to think that maybe here, too, in the cold, dark north, people understand how to drench a good thing with bourbon, and make it better.
