MOH toast

I had the honor and the joy of being my twin sister's maid of honor for her wedding yesterday. It was so much fun, and I can't believe it's over. One of the important jobs of being MOH is giving a toast. For all you people who are curious what I said in my toast, this blog is for you! Enjoy reading the speech I gave for my awesome, fun, kind, loving twin and her now husband!

As most of y'all know, I'm Katie's twin sister, Emily. Growing up with a twin is a huge blessing. Katie was the only person my age who I knew I could count on for absolutely everything at every single stage of life. We may have had our fights--okay, we definitely did have our fights--but at the end of the day, I knew she still loved me and I loved her. I remember several conversations about our future weddings and what our future grooms would be like. To be honest, it's strange that's she's now a Mrs! It feels like yesterday we were just dreaming of all this. Katie is one of the kindest, most compassionate people I know. She has been by my side through the good times and the bad, and I know I would not be the same without her. Obviously, Brice knows it now, too! Brice, asking Katie to marry you is one of your best decisions.

Katie and Brice met on our birthday in 2014 the Monday before Thanksgiving. She told us she had met this guy named Brice, and he seemed like a really great guy. But the moment of truth came when Katie went back to College station for the Thanksgiving A&M Vs LSU game. You Aggies probably remember, but A&M lost that game. I figured Katie would be crushed and her weekend would be ruined. And while she was pretty sad about the game, she kept mentioning this guy named Brice and how much fun they had. In my head I kept thinking "seriously, who is this guy??" Her face would light up when she talked about him, and trust me, she wouldn't stop talking about him. I knew Brice must be something special because anyone who could turn a loss against LSU at home on our birthday for the last game of the year into a good Thanksgiving break had to be a keeper. They began to date shortly after meeting, and, as they say, the rest is history. Katie and Brice's marriage will be one for the books. Not because of their own power, but because God is at the center of their relationship. Katie and Brice, keep Christ in your marriage always, and you will overcome any challenge that come your way as well as experience greater joys than you could ever imagine. And Brice--know that as Katie's twin, you're never getting rid of me! I will always be here for you two. To Brice and Katie--may you make many memories together, become great forgivers of each other's mistakes, laugh together a lot, and grow in love each and every day.
