I'm Back!!!


The wedding was phenomenal! We were blessed with perfect weather, low humidity, and a gorgeous sunset that evening. The bride and groom were happy and relaxed.


Hubby and I cleaned up well! Take note of my 'crafted' belt!


Father Daughter dance.



And here is the happy couple along with Daughter 1 in front of the wedding quilt. The quilt was hanging at the reception and guests were encouraged to take photos here.


And here is the secret project I worked on while we were living at the lake: I made lap quilts for all the bridesmaids using the same fabrics as were in the wedding quilt. They received them the morning of the wedding at a breakfast tea. 


Here are the bride and groom and Daughter 1 and her husband at the rehearsal dinner the night before. The dinner was a casual outdoor barbecue held at Crooked Oaks Farm, owned by Pat Dye who is a former Auburn football coach. Some of the guys were gifted with autographed Pat Dye footballs.



We were able to walk around the lodge and see all the memorabilia.


I was relieved at the point - I had just finished running the rehearsal - I'd been a bit nervous about this task, but it went so well!


It was a fabulous weekend! Hubby and I spent the day resting yesterday. Today we're feeling more 'normal.' And so today I will continue the unpacking of boxes. Still looking for my clothes - kind of important, don't you think? I'm also wanting to find my pots and pans. And some cereal bowls. That would be nice!

I still can't believe that the last several months which included an engagement, selling our home, moving to the lake, buying another home, moving back to town, and a graduation followed by a wonderful wedding weekend are finally over. We will always remember this past year! 

Hubby is going to the lake tomorrow and will bring back my fabric (YAY!) and some other items I'm missing. I dreamed last night I started a new quilt - I hope to be sewing again very soon!!!

And I promise I'm getting back to work on the instructions for the third sections of Bliss - coming soon!!! Have a wonderful day!!!!
