Today was a busy day but I want to talk about the ending of our day first. This afternoon we attended the wedding of some good friend’s daughter. The wedding was at 3 this afternoon, the color of the bridesmaid’s dresses were royal blue and the bride wore a beautiful white strapless dress the fit her perfectly. She looked radiant as she walked down the aisle on her dad’s arm (who by the way had a HUGE smile on his face) carrying a bouquet of brightly colored flowers. I always cry at weddings (yes, I am a huge sap and cry at the drop of a hat!) but when I saw the groom unashamedly wiping tears as they were streaming down his face I almost lost it. I listened closely to the words the minister was saying as he performed the beautiful ceremony. . . .I listened closely because after 16 years of marriage it is nice to hear those words again even if it is someone else saying them (because who doesn’t need to be reminded of the vows you made when life is getting in the way?). The minister pronounced them man and wife and told them to turn to the audience. . . .what looks of happiness these two young people had on their face knowing that moment was the beginning of their life together. We headed over to the reception as they took some pictures. The reception was simply decorated but beautiful. Bri the bride just graduated with her master’s in English or library science or something like that and I just saw on fb that the groom, Adam is an editor and the décor was perfect for these two (who by the way both graduated from grad school with 4.0’s. WHAT?) Anyway each table was decorated with books, white hydrangeas, blue daisies and baby’s breath. So cool..
As the bride and groom sat at the head table and toasts were made, this couple glowed with love. It was a wonderful thing to see. I love weddings. My Mom and I decorated a few weddings and we had the best times!
This morning we headed over to the home of a couple from church to pick up a piece of furniture they had given me. I don’t have all the history of it but as soon as I do and I actually get the furniture put in my kitchen, I will take pictures to show you and tell you all about it. It is a Hoosier cabinet. I am excited about it!
Well, that is all for today. I hope you all had a good week and are looking forward to a new one.
