Dear Kim,

It’s hard to explain just how happy I am that you’re now my sister. You’re hilarious, kind, beautiful, smart, humble and fun-loving, and you’re everything I could ever wish for in a sister and friend. I’m so lucky.

You’re also perfect for my brother, and I’m beyond grateful that you found each other. Before you came onto the scene, Patrick seemed to worry about the future. But all of that stopped once he met you.

Because you are his future. He’s happier than he’s ever been, and he seems complete now. Life with you is fun, exciting, and filled with  love–and that’s clear to everyone. :)

Thank you for making my brother so happy, Kim.

I’ll never forget the day that Patrick told me that he was going to ask you to marry him. He said that you’ve always been the one, and that he loves you more than anything. That everything makes sense with you.

(Awwww.)

Kim, you’ve become such an important part of our family. I love that you’re so involved, and that you attend every event–even when Patrick can’t because of work. (And I should add that you’re always the life of the party!) You keep up with the boys’ jokes and teasing (quite the feat!), and throw it right back at ’em. You never miss a beat.

It seems like you’ve always been a part of the fam.

Anyway, I’m so, so happy for you guys. I wish you all the love and happiness in the world, and while this post was written last week, I’m 100-percent positive that yesterday was perfect. (And an absolute blast!) Remember this feeling forever. You and Patrick are loved, supported adored by so many.

Especially me, hehe. Love you!

Love,

Kelly

PS: Fair warning: I’m sorry that I was a complete mess when you walked down the aisle. (I’m assuming I was, at least, haha.) Not only did my brother marry the girl of his dreams, the Sheehan family gained a seventh (absolutely fabulous) member!  How couldn’t I have cried?! ;)

And Dr. Patrick Sheehan: I know that reading style blogs isn’t exactly your thing, and that you’ll likely never see this, haha. But I love you so much. While you’re my brother, you’re also one of my best friends. I’m so proud of everything you’ve accomplished, the person you’ve become, and the life you’re creating with Kim. Congratulations, Peaches! Here’s to a lifetime of family and love!
