Wonderful Weekends

Good Afternoon All,

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend as much as I am! Yesterday was a wonderful day; I watched one of my dear friends get married. It was a beautiful wedding and they are such an amazing couple. 
This are our friends Tara & Joel. I am so very happy for them! 

Tara and I have been friends for years and years. I grew up around the block from her family and her brother and I are the same age; she is two years younger than us. High school is where Tara and I really became great friends. We were both in Leadership class and both played on the tennis team. After high school Tara and I remained in touch and spent quite a bit of time together. I'm so glad she has found the perfect person to spend the rest of her life with. Joel couldn't be more perfect for that girl!

Amelia, myself and Tara's mom Pam! I love Pam!!! She is so sweet. 

The Ceremony! Mr. Clarke performed their ceremony... he also performed ours. Clarke is loved throughout the entire community.

After the wedding we had another celebration to attend. My sister's boyfriend Chris turned 25 and his family had a birthday party for him. We got there toward the end of the party, but were able to spend a few hours there. It was a fun time.

Today I am just working around the house. I have some craft projects that I really want to start but laundry and weeding the garden take priority. I wish I had three day weekends. I feel I could accomplish so much more with an extra day! I want to revamp our rooms and FINALLY hang up pictures. We've been in this house since December, I think it is time to hang some stuff up. I'm getting a canvas made of one of the pictures that Kati took of Amelia, I just can't decide which one. Well, I better get going before I waste the day away. Hopefully I can craft it up a bit and post pictures for y'all. Have a great Sunday!

  1. It was so good to see you guys at Tara and Joel's wedding! Can't wait to see what photo you choose to hang up! - Kati

    1. It was great to see you as well. We plan on hanging up most of the ones you edited, if not all... but I have a canvas groupon that I want to use and I'm having a hard time picking which picture to use it on.
