I had the distinct pleasure of attending my great-grandlittle Sigma Kappa sister’s wedding this past weekend in Phoenix. Besides the beautiful sunshine and highlights such as lunch at Food Truck Friday and a tour of Frank Lloyd Wright’s winter home, Taliesin West, it was fantastic to see 13 other Delta sisters (including the bride) come together for the weekend.
I often think about how lucky I am to still be close with my Sigma Kappa family, including sisters I went to school with as well as those I knew as an alumna and advisor. I attended my little sister’s wedding, and have watched her three sons grow as she never fails to demonstrate what a caring mother she’s become.
Her little sister and I were roommates for the wedding weekend, and it made me realize how much I miss her since I moved to Chicago from Boston. I loved catching up on our lives and am so proud of the ways she’s striving to create a career she’s passionate about.
Her little sister was the beautiful bride who created a wedding that truly reflected her and her husband’s personalities. Her loyalty and vivaciousness was evident in her remarkable network of friends and sisters that traveled from Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, California, New York, Washington D.C., Illinois and the United Kingdom to share her special day.
And her little sister was also in attendance and read all of our favorite passage during the ceremony, 1 Corinthians 13. The youngest of the bunch, it was great to hear how she’s carving a place out in the world a few years after graduation and pursuing her dreams.
The wedding was a great reminder that we truly are sisters for life and certainly long after graduation. Just because you didn’t attend college at the same time doesn’t mean you don’t share a bond. And sisters will always be there to help you dance with a Justin Bieber cutout and sing the Sigma Kappa rap at the top of your lungs.
