This, my friends is a bridesmaid, one of the most amazing young women I know! Her name is Kailey, and she is my future sister in law.
On top of being an amazing bridesmaid for me this year (and the one closest to me in geography) she is also working her tush off in her senior year of high school, and about to turn 18!
When I asked Kailey to be my bridesmaid, she got all excited. We weren't extremely close yet, you know that awkward "this is my brother's girlfriend" timing? Well, I am proud to say that since than she has been becoming a close friend of mine. She is someone that I am proud to say will be my sister in law.
Though Andrew and Kailey have some true sibling rivalry going on, I have faith that eventually, they'll become close.
Kailey has also been working hard to become closer and closer to our daughter, her niece, Lorelei. They have begun to develop a wonderful relationship and I have a feeling that they'll be close friends.
She also was one of three to come with me to begin shopping for my dress. She was wonderful, I wound up requiring her help on zipping up each dress, so she did that. She also got to try on the dress we chose for her, and oh my was it gorgeous on her! I am so excited!!
