I arrived back in Seattle on Sunday night, after being with Dustin and Emily and their immediate families for the opening of wedding presents in the morning and brunch. The weekend was really extraordinary. Those of us much farther down the path of life may remember the first full day post-ceremony, with all the joy and promise that seemed to have no bounds. Seeing another young couple have that moment brings me profound happiness, and it makes me think of Jerry and smile.
Emily and Dustin are taking their official honeymoon to St. Lucia in January, but they have this week off and are going to a lakeside cabin to launch their new life as a married couple. I think they are remarkably well suited to each other, and I was so happy to work with them and be part of their wedding ceremony.
