This is the photograph I sent my youngest sister in law, J, for her birthday.
She is at the age of first developing her apartment so I figure everyone can use a photograph to hang up.
It is a nice thing to receive an unexpected gift... and to me one of the unexpected gifts of being married is the "sisters" it adds to my life.
I "inherited" 2 more sisters and one of the most amazing and unique nieces in the universe when I married my husband.
And I have to say it has been one of the best of many unexpected gifts.
I am looking forward to a trip we, the girls, will be taking in early April.
Me and my 2 sister in laws and mother in law are taking a late ski trip that will end with a "girlicious" spa day...I am already counting down the days for the spa day.
J the birthday girl who received the image above just turned 21 so needless to say we three will be consuming many glasses of red wine.
What are some of the unexpected gifts of getting married for you?
