Last night, my cousin Ingrid got married.
I could not attend,
not because I did not want to be there,
but because a plane ticket from Germany to Washington D.C. does not come cheap these days.
All weekend I've felt a little down.
Perhaps hormones are partially to blame,
but also because I miss familiar faces,
family and friends.
I have been in Germany two months,
and have only met a couple people my age-
and they don't live in my village.
Being this far away from family makes me realize how much they mean to me,
and how much I take them for granted sometimes.
So, to my family out there-
genetically related or not-
I love you,
and miss each and every one of you every single day.
so, you can imagine how touched I was when I woke up this morning to all their lovely faces.
These photos mean so much to me.
I feel so very very loved.
Jen- thank you so much for taking the time to post all these photos on my facebook. I am so lucky to have you as my sister.

And, a very special congratulations to my beautiful cousin and her husband, Chris.
welcome to the family!
*If you're confused about the name on the sign, don't worry, you're not going crazy. My family and friends pre-college know me as Jess. I decided to go by Bailey once I got to college.
