Time For Some Changes

It is amazing how much time it takes to plan and get ready for a wedding. It has been two weeks since my daughters wedding; I am looking around my house and seeing so many things that I have let go! So today I was up before dawn and planning my day. Deep cleaning is not one of my favorite things to do, but everything looks better already!

I did a little rearranging and hung my daughter's bridal portrait here. What do you think? I am also ready for some new paint and carpet! Amazing how freshing things up, hanging a picture and moving a few things around makes you want to remake a room. I have been visiting other blogs and looking at their houses for inspiration.

Liz, over at Mabel's House, recently had a post on colors and had links to other blogs inviting us into their homes to see some great ideas with colors and decorating ideas. This really makes me want to make some changes around here. Now I just need to take about a month off from work to have time to do everything. Wish me luck on that one!

Looking Back On A Special Day

Well what can I say? It has been four days since my daughter married. Looking back at it now all of the excitement, work, frustration, anticipation, planning, and yes worrying that it would rain on her outside wedding, all turned out beautifully. It was all worth it! She and her husband were so happy, even the rain did not make one bit of difference.

We started out the day with all of the girls of the wedding party having their hair and makeup done at the salon. Everyone was beautiful, especially the bride.

She carried red roses; all of the other flowers were white hydrangeas. Here she is just moments before the ceremony.

We had decided to wait a few minutes to see if the rain would let up, but decided to just proceed. As you can see by the look on the bride and groom's faces they didn't mind at all. I have never seen two people any happier.

After the ceremony everyone made their way inside for the reception. A great time was had by all as the couple enjoyed several beautiful heartfelt toasts, and time with family and friends. The cake was so elegant and had their monogram on it. The evening went by so quickly and they were whisked off in the limousine to begin their new life together . . .

Thank you all for your prayers and good wishes!

Rainy Day Wedding

Saturday June 14th started out as a sunny day, but by 5:00 p.m. the rain clouds started rolling in. Not to be out done we decided to proceed with the wedding. Everything was beautiful despite a little water baptizing everyone!

I am still trying to recover from such a busy week, but will post more pictures in the next few days!

Just a Note ~

Happy Friday! Just one more week until my daughters wedding and four weeks past her graduation from college and helping her move out. Everyone has been extremely busy. All the plans are coming together and I am starting to be a little more excited and looking forward to the uncoming wedding. Hopefully after that I can settle down again. Hope you all have a wonderful Friday and enjoy the weekend.
