"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

The sound of distant wedding bells...

The wedding invitations went out last week. The picture does not do them justice but my scanner is not working (new one on the way). They were designed and created by my daughter in-law to be. They are absolutely lovely.
Plans are moving along as they should be with every thing falling into place. My son and I are working on the menu for the grooms dinner (rehearsal dinner). There will probably be about fifteen of us. The wedding itself is quite small with just the bride and groom, no attendants, and their parents. We have a very small family but there are many, many new faces to enjoy and embrace on the brides side. We have already met many of them and they have made us feel like family. Six weeks and counting!


  1. beautiful and congratulations on gaining a daughter :)

  2. What beautiful invitations. I love the ones that are personally designed. She must be very talented. I'm sure your wedding will be wonderful, and to think they won't be going into a huge debt. Big weddings aren't important.

    By the way, did you get the card? Did you like it? 9Am I searching for a compliment? Of course!) LOL!

  11. Jojo,

    The wedding invitations are beautiful! Your future daughter-in-law has talent. She did a great job.

    I read some previous posts and am glad you are able to get out and about. It's very depressing when we have to stay indoors because of health reasons. You are going to have such fun at the wedding.

    Praying for you, my friend.
