Eric & Naomi's Wedding

The end of May I was in Colorado for my sister Naomi's wedding. It was a lovely day. The kind of day that gives you warm, happy, excited feelings all the way down to your toes. It was also beautiful in that there were tears of joy and happiness and healing. The whole day was full of God's goodness and that always makes any day just so much better. 

There were colorful lollipops that had to be torn out of their nicely taped packages and sometimes certain people would get very excited when one broke.... 'cause then it could be eaten without excuse. 

 There was yards and yards of burlap and lace for the tables.

Lord bless whoever stayed to finish decorating while the bride/bridesmaids got
 their nails made pretty.. :)

Rehearsal... obviously.

The morning of the wedding my cousins -Allison and Chels- did every ones hair and make-up. They do a fantastic job, just sayin'! 

These girls were so adorable! Makes me want to be a flower girl. :)

Naomi was a stunning bride. She had this same smile going on all day! And this is random here but I just love sister weddings! Think i'm a little prejudice?  No..not really.

The reception was beautiful. It was very simple and relaxed which I believe makes anything better! 

The coffee table. You can't see here but there were chocolate covered coffee beans. Yay! 

The new Mr. & Mrs. Eric Hunsberger! 

These sisters of mine are my favorite. :)

Bridesmaids. It was so fun meeting these girls..

Mom, Rhoda & I

Love this sister and cousin of mine.. Love how this picture shows their personalities! 

So here you have it. The day in pictures. 
The End.

In Which...I return from hibernation.

February 1st. That's the last time I blogged. 126 whole days ago. It's been a crazy spring, and I know I don't actually need to say that. I think it's fact that I just stated the obvious of everyone else's life too.... surprise! 

In January I began my first semester of college for my Associates degree in accounting. I enjoyed it a lot and now that summer has arrived I'm studying Human Relations and taking my Comp 1 class.. for which I will nervously tackle my essay writing abilities. I think perhaps a love/hate relationship is developing between me and English. I just don't normally include colons and semi colons in my writing. And I don't usually spend much time thinking about when to use 'their' or when it sounds better to say 'his or her' instead...Help! 

 So far this spring I have had great fun making wedding cakes for 3 of my friends, as well as a ton of graduation cakes which I will not post here, lest it turn into a food-blog-that-is-linked-to-on-pinterest-all.the.time. which is exactly not what I intend. I did post the wedding cakes though. Just because. 

Above is a picture of my sister and I with Mom at my sister Naomi's wedding. I have a few more pictures which I will post in a few days. Let me just say that it was a beautiful wedding full of good things. :) One of those weddings where you keep wanting to go back and have all the happiness all over again... 
And now we are here, experiencing today. Yesterday is gone, never to return and tomorrow is on a countdown to the exciting unknown. This post is a very random, non-deep-thinking return to what will hopefully be a more frequent string of posts in the near future....

Until then... please smile at someone who looks sad. They need to be able to see your joy. What's more, a smile just might save their day! :)
