Six weeks ago, Zeph (my younger brother) told me a story. About a very-important-date in his life. So important that it was ingrained in his memory–and cell phone calendar forever.
June 29, 2007.
He was away at camp. Learning about rustic-type things and conservation and wildlife and all things forestry. And there was a pretty brunette girl at the same camp. Her name was Kelsey. Zeph had known her–almost his whole life! They had grown up together. Played together as kids. Jumped in creeks together. Went to church together. Went to youth group events together. Had family holiday dinners together. Homeschool field trips together. Alot of togetherness + alot of friendship.
Zeph + this pretty girl named Kelsey went down to a dock on the lake that night at camp and looked at the stars together.
Fast-forward three years.

“Kelsey, will you marry me?”
She said “Yes!”
PS – I LOVED being the ‘facilitator/helper/gopher/co-conspirator’ person + photographer for this very, very special night. I might’ve choked up a little.My little brother is growing up and getting married.. and I’m getting a new sis-in-law!God is so good.
