My brother and his girlfriend of 2 years got married. Surprise!
They got engaged last month, but I wasn't expecting a phone call today to say they officially tied the knot. She's from Moscow, and came to this country for grad school. Legally it made things easier for them to get married sooner rather than later.
Our parents will host a formal reception for them here in April, but a big white wedding extravaganza will be taking place in Russia this July. I've been told the wedding celebrations there go on for days and are filled with lots of drinking and dancing. I'm down with that.
She's really sweet and I'm excited to have a new sister. My little bro made a good catch. Oh, and she speaks for 4 languages. Looks like I have a new travel partner!
