Horses, Carriages, and the Hidden Bottle of Fernet

This weekend, one of my best friends got married. When the bride & groom saw each other for the first time before the ceremony, the first thing Ari said to her almost-husband was "herro."

And it wasn't so much a big reveal as it was Brendan walking down the stairs to find Ari standing there, looking beautiful in her dress, laughing with her Nest.

Which is, incidentally, exactly how love works. There's no flashing lights or cameras or hullabaloo, no videographer zooming in on your ring finger; you find someone, standing just there, and there they are. To borrow a phrase from another Nestie, your soul settles around them, and that is all that matters.
