Spring is arriving here! My forsythia is finally blooming. I was beginning to wonder if I would ever see the beautiful yellow blooms this year. Spring has been very slow arriving here this year.
I always love the dainty little yellow flowers on my forsythia bush in the Spring.
I took this picture looking up at a huge Bradford pear tree we have in the front yard. These trees are always so lovely in the Spring. I have often wondered why they call them Bradford pear trees when they don't have any pears!
And the wedding plans are just about complete. It's just the small details we have to check off the list. The bride-to-be has stressed over her dress! Imagine that! :) Alterations have taken longer than expected and bridal protraits should be next week. The dress should have the hem completed this week. One more thing to mark off the list.
It's just the little things that seem to take so much time! I have been so busy this past week. We have shopped for bridal shower dresses and shoes and finally I think Jennifer has decided on which one she will wear to each occasion. Then there's the after-rehearsal dinner and the bridesmaid's luncheon and she had to find the "perfect" dress for each event. Oh ... I have never helped someone try on so many dresses in my life!
We did meet with the florist this week and the flowers are going to be beautiful! Jennifer is going to have green apples in clear vases at the reception with flowers spilling out of the vases. Decisions on the final menu for the reception has to be decided on soon. There are so many decisions! When my husband and I were married 33 years ago it was very simple. These days weddings take months to plan. My husband told her she should have just gone to the courthouse! LOL She didn't like that idea!
I also picked up the unity candles this week that she had engraved with their initials ... they are beautiful. She wants to have a candle for Amber with her initials as well that will be lit for the ceremony. Jennfier always remembers her sister. She is using purple (iris) for the bridesmaids dresses ... Amber's favorite color.
Although it has been stressful with wedding plans it has kept my mind busy ...which is good. I miss Amber so much! I decorated her gravesite this week with Easter colors. I found a purple Easter egg and put it with beautiful spring flowers with bunnies on her headstone.
I seem to have so many moods lately. One minute I am thinking about wedding plans and the next minute I am crying because I miss Amber's sweet smile so much! I do know she is watching us from Heaven with a huge smile on her face!
Thanks for visiting and God Bless,
