Not so long ago, my cousin Lindy started dating a guy named Lars. He hit it off with my family immediately. I would find out – at almost the same time – that he loves food and cooking more than any other human being I’ve ever met. Pretty early on, he cooked a huge, multi-course meal for my entire extended family. Through a mouth full of food I joked with Lindy and her mother that Lars was a keeper.
The sun was set on high this morning when Lindy and Lars were married. It was a quick ceremony befitting their whirlwind romance. Bubbles rose in the air around the new Mr. and Mrs. Mitsuda as the two floated through family and friends gathered to celebrate them. Smiles and laughter filled the courtyard, the happiness often punctuated by squeals of children running under the shade of expansive trees.
Lars and Lindy,
Thank you so much for allowing us to take part in your special day. We’re so thrilled to have added (Uncle) Lars to the family! We wish you both love, happiness, and a lifetime of food adventures and techie discoveries.
Phil, Lynnette, Madison, Cole, and Avery
