The countdown begins...

I trust your Thanksgiving was full of love and gratitude and Turkey with all the fixins:>)
Ours was simple and sweet. Bright sunshine and temps hovering near 60, ten of us around the table and all aware that things are changing. We are counting the days now, Lauren is slated to be wed next Saturday at our little church and the countdown is on. After this year we can only hope that she and her sweetheart will be able to make it home for the holidays. A little bittersweet to think of, but we have high hopes that we will be able to adjust and make it happen as often as possible!
She and her father woke up in the wee hours so he could teach her the finer points of stuffing and roasting the turkey.  There were a few calls for pointers from her fiance who was in Pennsylvania making the turkey for his dad.  He's a sweetie, and from the photos he sent her of their feast, he did a fine job with the cooking! A man who cooks is a treasure ♥
So here we go, the whirlwind pre-wedding week begins again, and it means I won't be checking in until the dust clears.
 But then I'll have photos of the wedding:>)


  1. A busy week ahead for you, but I know it will all come together and be absolutely filled with love, joy and be completely will the bride!

    I love that Lauren was up early with her dad, learning how to make and stuff the turkey...cherished, treasured moments.

    Remember to breathe during all of this Kathy and enjoy every moment. Looking forward to the photos and all the best to Lauren and her young man for many happy years together! xo

  2. Belated Thanksgiving wishes to you, my friend. Praying for you as you take care of all the last details for the wedding and the transitions ahead. We are blessed! Hope you can relax and catch your breath once in awhile in the next days.

  7. A man who cooks is indeed a treasure!

    Sounds like a busy & emotional week ahead for you.

    It was in the 70's here Thanksgiving day. We could have had our meal outside!!

  8. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving but quiet as well. Only five around our table. I'll be thinking of you this week with all the activities. Did you get your dress done? I'll be looking for your next post with wedding details.
