A Special Blessing...

Yesterday, we were blessed to have witnessed the marriage of the daughter of very dear friends.  The bride, Hilary, and our daughter, Carra have been best friends since they were babies.  They were even roommates for a few years after college.  It has been a joy to watch Hilary grow from a little girl into a beautiful, lovely young woman, who has found her true soul mate at last.

 One of the interesting aspects of the reception was an intriguing Chocolate Fountain.  We had never heard of such a thing, but it was delightful, and everyone seemed to be thoroughly enjoying dipping everything from fruit to various kinds of cookies, pretzels, and biscottis into the flowing delectible chocolate.  Yummmmmm!

This precious little flower girl was totally enthralled with the wedding cake, and just couldn't wait for the bride and groom to cut it!
Okay, now it looks like maybe they're beginning to look serious about cutting this cake, so more of the little children gather round in anticipation.  So cute...
Marriage is a very special blessing indeed, when you have found that one very special person with whom to share your life, through good times and difficult ones, in joy and in sorrow, passing through the peaks and valleys of life. 

"And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God."

  1. Hi Kathy, I got way behind in my blog reading. I was wondering how your surgery went. I'm glad you are feeling better. I love your autumn stitched pieces. I love the autumn pallet of colors. Little Emery is as cute as can be! I know you are very proud grandparents. Is that a hardanger piece underneath the roses?
