Flowers, Flowers Everywhere

We ended up with lots of flowers in our home this weekend!  On Friday I picked up two small mixed bouquets of flowers from Aldi! I was craving fresh flowers.

Tim brought me a lovely bouquet for Valentine's Day...

I went into my bedroom to find that Rachel had bought me a bouquet of roses...

Then Wes came and brought Rachel a beautiful bouquet!

We are all enjoying the beautify effect of fresh flowers in the house!

I hope you had a lovely weekend.  Ours was cold, but sunny, and the sun is shining today, too!  It's been a mild but grey winter, so I always make note when the sun is shining!

We spent yesterday afternoon with friends.  Remember praying for my friend Jen?  She is doing well in her recovery.  We brought pizza, they provided everything else and we all had a wonderful time. Kids played, young adults kids visited and played games, the adults visited, enjoyed grandbabies, used a computer program to layout the reception space for Rachel and Wes' wedding.  Good times!

We'll be working on addressing invitations this week!  Very exciting!  68 days until the wedding!  Lots to do but we have it well in hand.  There have been crazy things that have happened - for example we now have to set up the wedding the morning of instead of the evening before - but God has got all the details!  

Trusting that this will be a great week.


  1. There's always something exciting going on in your life!!

  2. Your flowers are just beautiful!! Nothing like flowers in the house. Wedding planning can be stressful, but is sounds like you have it all under control...what a great feeling! Have a wonderful Monday!

  3. What gorgeous flowers. They must make you smile as you walk through your home. Have fun with the wedding planning.

  4. WOW, lucky you surrounded by all of those flowers! I thought at first you were prepping for a wedding:) Enjoy them, flowers add a special touch to our homes! Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!
