My best friend got married this weekend. It was an exhausting three days of whiskey, toasts, dancing, and bison.
We celebrated the love of these two awesome people and I, as a co-best man, was charged with giving a toast. I struggled to bring to words the joy and appreciation I felt for Brian and Kimi, but finally, a mere hours before the ceremony, I scrawled my thoughts onto a handful of recently purchased note cards.
I realize now, that I should have just shown this video:
George Harrison pretty much sums up the message that I wanted to share to this newly nuptualized couple: Love is awesome, but staying committed to love amid all the other crap that consumes your life, that is the greatest challenge you'll ever face.
It's gonna take time to do it right.
