It’s been three weeks since I last posted and so much has happened I don’t even know where to begin. To make a long story short let me just tell you that we had plenty of drama the week before the wedding. Everything from doctors visits, buying a car, rented tux’s that didn’t fit – which resulted in a tux purchase and alterations all done in 24 hours, custom made lace bolero’s that were altered too small, and a made of honor dress that wasn’t hemmed short enough.
In spite of it all we kept our focus on what mattered the most – that Katy and Esau would be married. The wedding ceremony and reception were beautiful. All those months of preperations and decision making paid off. Although I had my camera with me I never managed to get one photo! I know, can you believe it? I was able to just take it all in, enjoy myself and watch the day unfold.
Of course we will have the professional photos in a few weeks and I can hardly wait to see them. We hired a husband and wife photography team. They arrived at our house about o’ dark thirty the morning of the wedding to document the “beauty” process. We had two hairdressers and a makeup artist working their magic! My mom made scones and purchased some other goodies and set out a nice spread that morning that everyone enjoyed. I don’t know what we would have done if Grandma Jan hadn’t been here to help. By the end of the morning everyone wanted to adopt her or rather they were wishing she would adopt them! Thanks for all the help mom – you are the best and we miss you!
I will share a few photos that friends snapped with their iPhones!

The happy couple!
The wedding is over, the out of town guests have all gone home and we are figuring out what our new “normal” will be. Do you hear that? It’s the sounds of silence that come with having an empty nest. After years of having children live with us we are back where we started some 33 years ago – just me and hubby Tom!
How do we feel about our empty nest? It’s roomy, refreshing, slightly strange and lovely all at the same time. Of course we hope that the children won’t forget us and will stop by often to visit!
