I promise after this post, there will be no more talk of weddings for awhile! I wanted to say Happy Anniversary to my son Kevin and his bride, Mary Clare. They celebrated one year on Sunday! It's hard to believe that one year ago I was running around like mad getting ready for the big day. In the end, it all flowed magically and I have beautiful memories.
This little girl continues with preparing for her wedding (shown here with The Husband). I so appreciate all the sweet comments on her wedding dress. She is going to look stunning. As with any couple on a budget, their plans move along slow and steady. They had their engagement pictures done a few weeks ago and Emily made an album with them. I look at them and want to cry! They are such a happy couple and so meant for each other! Sigh!
The dog days of summer are winding down and I am trying to buckle up and get busy around here. I've been spending a lot of time in the cool air conditioning, devouring book after book. Did you know Target has one of the best selections of soft cover books? It never fails that I find one or two when I'm there. I alternate reading books and using my Nook...both are fine for me. I'm in the middle of a good one now and I race to get the dinner dishes done so I can get back to it in the evenings!
We had a terrible weekend with first the heat and humidity and then rain. We were cooped up in the house reading and watching movies. I'm looking forward to the end of the heat, when I can throw open my windows and have some fresh air. The Husband has had such a sweet tooth lately and has been binging on Twinkies and Hostess Cupcakes and ice cream. Pure poison! I want to bake for him but I'm avoiding using the oven. That has me looking forward to fall, fresh baked sweets, slow cooked soups and the smell of woodsmoke in the air. I think I may even decorate for fall early! And I have some ideas for some tablescapes as well as a simple bedroom updo that I worked on last week. But after I finish this book! See all of you soon! :)
