It's Still Monday Isn't It?

I know, I know, I'm late and I'm so sorry! I have a good excuse, though. My daughter's wedding was yesterday and I volunteered to babysit so her and her new hubby could have a wedding night away from home. Which turned in to all day today as well. Ever try doing anything on the computer with a rambunctious fifteen month old around?

Everything went great yesterday and everyone looked wonderful. The ceremony was at Leu Gardens at the Courtyard Gazebo. My little granddaughter, Alivia, looked like a little princess and stole the show. But mommy and daddy didn't care. A little tip, if you're ever looking for a gown for a little girl to wear to a wedding check out christening gowns. The place where my daughter got her wedding gown wanted a hundred dollars and up for a dress for Alivia. We found a lovely christening gown for half the price.

The weather was wonderful as well. Cool at nine o'clock in the morning, yet it was a little warm in the sun so we managed to find plenty of trees and lush greenery for shade. The reverend and photographer were there early and waiting for us. Can't wait to see the pictures. I bet he took five hundred at least! It pays to have friends in the business:)

By the time we arrived at the reception the cake was set up and all the food delivered. It just couldn't have gone any better if I had planned it myself. Oh, wait, I did plan it! LOL But I have to give credit to two of my sister-in-laws who opened their larger homes for the reception, painted, decorated, did all the flowers. I'll never be able to repay them.

That all said, I'm glad it's over. I'm looking forward to the coming weekend where nothing is planned.

Bet you are tired, Debbie! But sounds so lovely and it was a beautiful day. All best to your family. Hope you can put your feet up today and savor the event.

It was a perfect day, Margaret:) Thanks for the congrats.

Kathleen, you bet I was exhausted! And so was little Alivia. When we got home she crawled up on me and we both crashed for two hours on the sofa.

Congrats to the newlyweds! A wedding--how wonderful! I've got to admit, I love weddings.

Too sweet, the after-party nap with Alivia. :)
