With some cardstock, ink and determination you 
can make some very nice looking programs. 
That and a creative man that knows how to sew.
Lisa is keeping an eye on David making sure he's doing it right

Who knew that grapevine balls, Norwegian moss and and little lights 
could make such a lovely combination? 
Well I did have a hunch...

They will be swinging from metal stands made by my talented fiancee..
I absolutely adore these.

I can't help but to brag about my talented David.
He is amazing. I am so very lucky to have him.
He sketched out the tree on the canvas and I
painted the tree with acrylic paint.

It will be a fingerprint guestbook tree.
Something to keep forever.
A piece of art made by family and friends.
It doesn't get much better than that!

We did all of this last night and even squeezed in
a dance practice outside under the stars.
He is a very good dancer...

11 days to go!
I think there is a dozen butterflies in my tummy today...

  10. thank you, thank you! It means so much to me that you are right here taking this journey with me!

    Kit I am looking into options for streaming it! I will let you know for sure. Otherwise we did dig up an old video camera so if I can live stream it I will at least share a video of it later!


I treasure your words and the fact that you are
taking the time to share them with me.
Please forgive me if I don't respond personally to you.
I always try but sometimes time just flies away!
