What a whirlwind weekend.
A concert in Ann Arbor on Friday. A folk singer that my cousin Shannon introduced me to, named Melissa Ferrick. Good show. Some funny banter. I really enjoy when musicans seem to appreciate the crowd they are playing for. It makes it so much warmer to watch.
Then a family wedding on Saturday, for my cousin John. Such a great guy. I'm so happy for him. His new wife, Amanda has a son, Dakota and John is now a dad.
Couldn't ask for a better one. John lost his dad when he was just a baby, but I'm sure his dad would be so proud of the man, his son has become.
The wedding was quite a party, but when there's a shuttle bus and no worries about drinking, all you have to worry about is your liver.
I'm always humbled and honored to be part of such a large, loving family so full of Irish pride that it's truly amazing.
We are blessed, despite recent sad events. We shall heal and grow stronger still.
We are family.
