... this weekend we went to a dear friends wedding...
I really believe that any day is a good day for a wedding, no matter the weather, but do you think a day can get any prettier than this? We followed this path, filled with wedding goers, all the way out to the eucalyptus trees in the far distance...
...and at home another story involving romance and surprise unfolded this weekend. My youngest was the center of a sweet plan, unbeknownst to her . She went out for coffee with a friend that had dropped by, "I'll be back soon" she said. Shortly after, another of her friends was at our door. I said she'd already gone out. They said, Can we come in? We have a plan. The boy that my daughter likes wanted to ask her to the Senior Prom. And he wanted to surprise her. So while the one friend got her out of the house, the other two lined roses up from our driveway, up the porch, through the house and into her room. He'd made a poster with the one word PROM and when they were done spreading the rose petals around, he sat on her floor under the sign, with the rest of the blossoms and waited. The other friend got the signal they were done, and my girl came home.
She walked in with a look of annoyance saying
"who left these flowers all over the place?"
And then, when she stepped in her room she saw him sitting there,directly below the sign, smiling, clutching a fistfull of roses and asked her to go with him.
The above picture is her saying yes.

My Mom and StepDad came up for a visit. And my Sister too. I never get tired of watching my StepDad with my Mom. He never gets tired of looking after her. They are getting more like kids the older they get, giggling, playful, sharing jokes, saying "My Love" to each other. And they never take a drink of anything without clinking glasses. He whispered to me that their anniversary is coming up, 35 years and he wants to surprise her.
A party of some kind.
I promised him my help.
We didn't discuss a plan yet...
but I think it should include some roses.
Love to you,
