This weekend we went to a beautiful wedding! One of my best friend's in high school oldest daughter got married Saturday. We made the trip back to Arkansas to celebrate with them. It was a gorgeous spring day and the setting was out-of-this world. They got married at Garven Gardens in Hot Springs and the dogwood trees and wild flowers were in full bloom.
Gage was suddenly aware he was the center of attention as he headed toward the alter and got shy. Thank goodness he had a ring-bearer pillow to hide behind!
It was a beautiful sweet ceremony! And it was the first time I've watched as one of my best friends had a child get married! I sat watching mom and dad get teary-eyed and it hit me that we are getting close to that phase in life with our kids too.
Easter Sunday we got up and drove home but before leaving Lake Ouachita we got to see a young man being baptised in the lake with his grandparents present. I can't recall a more beautiful Easter. Between the trees blooming, the fields of wild clover, cowslip, and other wild flowers... it was a beautiful drive home. It was hard to leave one of our favorite places and some of our favorite friends. But we left promising to visit each other soon! We had so much fun on our visit and shared lots of laughs and even some stories that might have been better left unsaid!
I'm a wife and mom! That about sums me up! I am blessed to be married to my best friend for 28 years now. I have 2 great kids that are grown! My hobbies include: Cooking, photography, gardening, reading, painting, and pottery, and feathering my nest!
