So I’ve been meaning to post about the wrap up of our home renovation, but I wanted to wait until I got things put back in place to take some pictures. Well, I haven’t gotten things put back in place yet. Some of it, but not all of it. I still have a few cabinet doors to finish painting before I unpack the last few boxes. And I need to get my sister to help me fix the chandelier that I broke…
It will get done, and all will be well.
In the meantime, I have very exciting news! Our daughter, Jami, is getting married!
We are so excited for her and her young man. Jami and DD have known each other almost four years, and they’ve been dating almost three. He proposed on March 21, and they will be getting married in September.
I couldn’t ask for a nicer man for a son-in-law. He is a hard worker, kind and generous, and he loves our girl. Most importantly, he knows and loves Jesus.
So we’ve hit the ground running planning a wedding that is less than six months away! A venue has been secured and we hope to meet with a caterer that comes highly recommended sometime next week. The first few days were a bit stressful, but after talking with our potential caterer, we are feeling a lot more at peace with everything. Thank goodness!
I have to admit, I was a bit sad last night when I realized that this past Christmas was our last Christmas with our girl at home. I guess there’s no way to know when anything is the “last” of anything until after it’s already come and gone. We just have to focus on the happy firsts in our future. From what I can tell so far, there will be a lot of them and that makes everything all right.
