Here Comes Summer

... and a wedding!

Our youngest daughter, Ann, is getting married on an upcoming August evening ... on the front lawn of our home.  She's hustling and bustling of late with invites, maps, yard signs, check lists, etc.  Has never stepped inside a bridal shop .. but instead has ordered off Etsy.  Dress arrived perfectly sized.  We opened my sealed wedding dress storage box to inspect my veil .. it's what she wants to wear!  This girl knows how to be thrifty minded. 

Of late you can find her father and I planting flower bulbs, trimming this and that, turning over the garden soil, trapping wasps early in the season to avert last summer's scenario of the pests. 

We're excited for her .. she has chosen a wonderful young man.

Mrs. Mac,

Congratulations!!!!
Great picture of your daughter and her hubby to be.
The wedding should be beautiful in your gorgeous yard.
There is nothing wrong with saving money when preparing to get married. I would rather spend money on a home, than be in debt on a wedding. Your daughter is a very smart young lady.
