You guys, I did it. I managed to make a speech at my cousin's wedding without passing out. Her wedding was beautiful, personal and elegant. Way too soon, it was time for speeches. The groom made a funny, sweet speech. The best man made a witty speech with a great ending. All the sudden it was my turn. It was sentimental, but I had to keep it short because my cousin and I were crying. But I'm so proud of myself! I spoke publicly! Admittedly, my wine glass was almost empty by the time I got up there, but still...another one crossed off my 24x24 list.
