Busy, Busy, Busy

With all things wedding! Even though there has been so much to do I am having a real good time. It is super fun to watch my daughter's ideas come together. I feel totally blessed that she is allowing me to help her.

I believe except for the food we will be making for the wedding reception I'm almost done purchasing things. Which is wonderful feeling! Not to much cooking to be done strictly because we are keeping it small, under 30 people plus making it a potluck reception. We are making cupcakes and a 6" cake instead of a large wedding cake which will help in the dollar department. When you don't have a lot of freezer or storage space you have to make do somehow. The week before the wedding will be filled with baking, baking and more baking!!

The flowers are purchased and waiting to be put into bouquet and archway. I was not sure of Angela's color choices but they are beautiful and bright. More to come.......

One year and 10 days

That is how long we have lived her in Spokane. Sometimes I still feel like I am in a dream and that I'm going to wake up living back in our other house with Bruce travelling out of town every week.

Things I have learned this past year and 10 days:

*That it is okay to be angry sometimes, even when it takes you while to figure out why
*That things on your honey do list can actually get done
*That gardening isn't so bad when you have someone to share it with
*That driving in traffic isn't so bad once you get use to it
*That figuring out your way around is scary at first but a breeze once you go out on your own
*That after living here for a year and 10 days I STILL have stuff to get rid of, but haven't added anything(well maybe a few things in my scrapbook corner)
*That it is nice to take a break from scrapbooking even for a little while
*That I can be my best friend but still miss doing things with others
*That I really do miss entertaining

So these are a few things I have learned. Are you learning anything special?

It has been 16 years

16 years ago today a little baby boy came into my life and changed me forever.
Time has gone by faster than what I would have liked but all in all my beautiful baby boy has grown into a young man that I am terribly proud of.

Son, I hope you have a wonderful new year full of excitement and fun. A mother couldn't ask for a better son than you. I love you!!
