Katie and Drew’s Wedding Weekend: The Video!

So I’m still recuperating from the weekend extravaganza that was Katie and Drew’s wedding, and if you’ve talked to me in the past few weeks, I probably told you what a fantastic time it was! Well, now I have the video to prove it. So here, for your viewing pleasure, the Poff-Wiechnicki slideshow, with music by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and Mat Kearney. Enjoy!

The Streets of Heaven are too Crowded with Angels

It wasn’t lost on me that I would be moving back to New York very close to the 10th anniversary of the September 11th attacks. I wrote last year about what that day was like for me, and how it changed my world. Because 9/11 had such an impact on me and my family, I thought it was only right that I pay a visit to the Ground Zero site this weekend.

The last time I was at Ground Zero was 2001. I remember the posters and pictures of loved ones who were still missing. They were posted for blocks, on the walls of buildings, on the gates of Trinity Church.

There’s a New Baby in Town!

On Friday, July 15, 2011 at 6:38pm, my cousin Debbe gave birth to the newest addition to the Turnbull family, Raegan Jeanette Weisner. She’s a beautiful 8 pounds, 9 ounces of a baby and I can already tell she’s gonna be a rip. Oh I just want to hug her!

Mom and baby are doing great, but I heard dad, the big man that he is, almost fainted. Oh Rae, I have some good dirt on your dad. Come to me anytime.

Congratulations to Matt, Debbe, all the Weisners and all the Dickinsons. Welcome to the world, baby girl! We love you to pieces already.
