What a wonderful weekend! Saturday I attended a bridal shower for the fiance of a close family friend's son. The couple have been together for 9 years, dating all through school. Living in a small town, everyone knows everyone, so many of my friends were there to celebrate this soon to be wedding that has been in the making a while. The shower started at 7 pm and was held at a nearby restaurant "The Millcreek Brewing Company". I am old school and used to showers being held at someones house, or at the most, at a rented social hall. They are totally different now. The Bride To Be, opened our gifts as we entered the building, which was so different, but a great way to do it. That way, we were up close and personal with her while she opened our gift and we got to talk to her about it. I loved it. It didn't even back up the line coming in to much either like you think it would. They served appetizers and it was open bar! I am not that big of a drinker, so I opted to be the DD for my sister and I. Here is a picture from the night.....
My sister Connie is on the right,
our friend Angie in the back.
Angie and my sister Connie have been best friend since 4th grade. Angie's daughter is best friends with the Bride To Be, and is also getting married this summer! So much love in the air! It's a strange feeling when your friends children start to marry. It doesn't seem possible that they are old enough. Aren't they still little? To young to marry? I forget that life has been moving and the kids aren't kids anymore. They are adults, planning and making their own lives. We've taught them what love is. Now it's their turn to share their love forever.
