As some of you already know (many thanks to Sonia) Ryan and I do not have a wedding registry. Instead, we have set up a "New Zealand Fund". Many of you know that Ryan's father passed away not long ago and it has become even more important for us to make it back to Wellington for Christmas. We need to be there for his mother and sister (and, frankly, for Ryan, as well). We've been getting a lot of questions about wedding presents and what we want or need, and though it is tacky to ask for money, the need is in getting to New Zealand to spend an important holiday with our grieving family. If you can, and you feel so inclined, here is the link to donate. I want to thank those of you who have already donated, you have no idea what it means to us. And I want to thank all of you, for already being a part of our special day.
