Lauren & Brian used this as a reading at their wedding last year, and it’s stuck with me ever since.

Here’s to glorious, amazing mistakes in 2013.

I had just assumed it’s from one of his books, in fact he wrote it for New Years 2011:

      Brian! awesome, thanks for chiming in. And, blogs are probably the new poetry book when it comes to sources for wedding readings ;)
