The wedding tree, yes to the dress and surrounded by love
- Niece Amanda (the youngest, sob!) will be married to her beloved Travis next March under that tree in the middle of the photo. (Click to enlarge.) The branch on the left forms a natural arch that they will stand under during the ceremony. She wanted to be married at home on the farm and the plans are going beautifully.
- I was delighted to be invited for the choosing of the dress and went with the wedding posse to this bridal shop on Saturday morning, where a dress that is very "her" was chosen.
- Four-year-old great nephew Monroe woke on Sunday morning and came out with Curious George in tow, rubbing his eyes and asking "Where's Aunt Lynnie?" I got the best sleepy hug.
- Travis and his seven-year-old daughter Kloie are already a part of our family. She knows that I love dragonflies and was so excited to give me this one, fashioned out of paper, that she made for me. It has a place of honor on my refrigerator, along with hummingbird paraphernalia and Frieda Kahlo. :)
It was a long, quick trip and I'm still tired from it, but I was surrounded by love all weekend. I needed that.
