I'm celebrating two things this week:

1. I'm celebrating our nephew's wedding, which takes place Friday - just two days from now. It's an Indian wedding that starts early in the day and goes on for quite awhile, and Thursday (tomorrow) I'll be on the plane to Pittsburgh, PA, where the wedding is taking place. I'm celebrating early, since I know I won't have time to post. I'll get to see a lot of relatives I haven't seen for awhile, and I'm looking forward to meeting the bride.

2. I'm celebrating being a guest on the wonderful Kirby Larson's Friend Friday post. Here is the link to her webpage: http://www.kirbylarson.com/blog/

She has a series of columns, one for Mondays, Tuesdays, etc. Fridays are always "Friendship Friday". If you click on it now, you'll get last Friday's guests, author LaurieAnn Thompson and illustrator Paul Schmid, who teamed up to write what looks like a charming picture book, My Dog Is Best. My post will be on the 26th, two days from now. Please do take a look Friday.

In the meantime, please go next door to my Fourth Wish Blog  to read about a wonderful Fado singer whom we met in Portugal when I was doing research for my next book.

Celebrate the Small Things is a nifty blog hop sponsored by Lexa Cain ,  Tonja Drecker of Kidbits Blog , and L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge 
Do have a look at these three great sites, and look into the links of others who are part of this blog hop. You'll meet some nice friends!

  4. It is, Rosi! Indian weddings are so much fun. They are really socializing events while the ceremony takes place. Decorations are beautiful. The ceremony is beautiful. I'll take lots of pictures to bring back. I'll post about it, too.

  5. I love weddings. An Indian one too, which should be so beautiful and delicious with all those different foods. Enjoy!

  8. Thanks for stopping by, Sharon, Shah, and T. Yes, "fun" is a key word for an Indian wedding. It's exhausting work for the parents, but the guests have a great time. And the saris make the wedding hall look like a flower garden.
