At 10:30 EST tonight, which is 9:00am in India, GG's sister, Tini to us ( Kristen to adults) and Nirmal will be wed in Hyderabad, India.
We are heartbroken not to be with them and have been relying on intermittent emails and photos to stay in the groove.
Today we received a few pictures of Tini getting her hands beautifully hennaed for the ceremony. I have known her for 6 years now and I have never seen her look this calm and happy. Of course I cried when I saw the photos and read the involved explanation of the wedding ceremony sent by Oliver, GG and Tini's brother.
They return to us on February 13th and once the madness of Valentine's Day is over we can watch the wedding video and continue the celebration with our new bava (brother in law in Telugu).
But for tonight our thoughts and hearts are in India.
