Wedding Weekend

Flying with a toddler was another story. I am happy we will not be doing that again any time soon. It was kind of stressful trying to keep an active feisty toddler who partied late the night before on the dance floor quiet and contained in my lap for a few hours. We played with play dough and trains and colored and ate snacks and lollipops but there were a few fits too and thankfully the surrounding travelers were gracious.

my handsome wedding date.

  The morning after we took a early morning walk  with sweet little Jael still sporting her sparkly wedding shoes. The above place reminded me of something that should be in the shire not the city but it did look pretty enchanting.

Philadelphia is breathtaking this time of the year and we collected our color treasures along the way. It was a whirlwind weekend  but so wonderful to be in my friends house with her family for a few days.

 There are no words for how precious these women are to me. We have welcomed new lives together and said goodbyes and shared so much. My heart is full of memories of growing up with them, summers, birthdays, recitals then marriages, pregnancies and births.  The last few days gave me a few more to treasure.  

*Autumn Wedding*

What a day for a wedding. I flew up to Philadelphia with my baby boy this past weekend to sing in a wedding. It was beyond gorgeous. Colors flung vibrant as a painter's palette, long shadows and perfect golden light. It was a lovely landscape to celebrate love. I've known Charlotte since she was a little bitty thing  and I spent almost every weekend at her house with her big sister who has been my best friend since I was eight. It never gets old, seeing someone dear to you fall in love. So much joy overflowing.  It was a day I will not soon forget.
