There is no more lovely,
friendly and charming
relationship, communion
or company than a good

~Martin Luther

 Tables were set up
and flowers planted,
 Lots of food was cooked,
Barbeque, rice, hash,
cold slaw, beans, and
Frogmore Stew.
 There were cupcakes,
 and time to practice
duck calling,
there was even a little
time to knit as we
prepared for a rehearsal
dinner for my oldest
son. The dinner was
a success so I am

 All the men in my life.
 My daughter and her husband,
along with my favorite wee one.

Me and Mike. :)
[I have a new 'do'
with layers and bangs]
 The diningroom before
the crowd arrived.

 The wedding was
yesterday and while
I must wait for the
photos from the
photographers, I did
manage to take a
few quick shots before
the evening became
too hectic. It was
all beautiful, fun,
filled with tears and
laughter....and I
am worn out!
