The Country of Marriage

My little sister is getting married this weekend. (Because I remember the day she was born, my brain keeps telling me that this should be impossible, though clearly it's not. I have the plane ticket to prove it.) She will be a beautiful bride, and - what is somewhat rarer, because have you ever seen a bride who was not beautiful? - a devoted and happy wife. She simply has that kind of character.

In her honor, and also Aaron's (her husband-to-be), here is the link to one of my favorite Wendell Berry poems, "The Country of Marriage".
