It was just over week after we had packed up our lives in Melbourne and relocated to Yeppoon, that my sister got married. Amongst the influx of interstate guests, the arrival of moving boxes and the last minute preparations for the wedding, it was a hectic time to say the least! At the time my thoughts got lost in the whirlwind of activity, so now I am taking this opportunity to express my happiness on such a awesome event…
Firstly to Marcus, welcome to the Howlett family – I am not sure you realised when you asked Sarah to marry you that you were actually taking on the all of us, but I am glad you have accepted the challenge! You are such a kind hearted, generous and supportive person, Sarah is lucky to have you in her life and so are we. Thank you for making Sarah happy. Every day, I can see in your words, your actions, your eyes how much you love my sister. And the way you have embraced us all is truly appreciated, from accepting my unladylike eating habits, to Dad parading in his y-fronts and the endless lists of handyman jobs from Mum – you are now officially part of our family.
To my sister Sarah, mein Schwest. I love you. Not only for our mutual appreciation for Revenge of the Nerd movies, old fried dimsims and our wicked tag team dance routines, but for the other stuff too. For being a great listener, a positive influence, being up for anything, for embracing the crazy! I know I can always rely on you, for the serious stuff and for the silly stuff too! You are a beautiful person, a wonderful sister and a great friend. I am so glad you have found Marcus, I know you two will create a wonderful life together and we are so grateful to be able to part of it.
Love youse guys! xoxo
