I attended a family wedding this weekend that resulted in a Gaggle of Griesgrabers - this is the family of my late mother-in-law, of blessed memory (+), and it is always a delight to spend time with these folks.
I had fun catching up with my two nieces, Jen and Carly (actually, this picture shows Carly on the left and Jen on the right). Both have grown up to be accomplished, beautiful young women and they remain extremely close as sisters, notwithstanding the fact that Jen is an up and coming Beltway sophisticate who attended college in Washington D.C. and Carly (Brachiopods Rule!) is completing her studies in marine biology in Hawaii and exudes the da kine spirit.
Anyway, I came across Jen's blog - flaming liberal politically, but we love her! Go read Wahine Report and tell 'er, Auntie Steph sent ya!
Um, girls, you really don't mind me posting this picture, do you? Despite the funny faces, they are both gorgeous and if anyone knows of some nice, respectful, Catholic fellows in Virginia or Hawaii their age, send me their resumes . . .
