Bride and Groom To Be

Tonight I made the pretend bouquet with the shower ribbons. Laura thought they were discarded but they were in a bag at Erika and Mark’s. I tried on my dress and shoes and got a positive response. This outfit is the mail order one I got last week. Tomorrow the rehearsal and bowling pizza sub buffet at the Columbus Athletic Club. Cookies in the back of the car waiting to be delivered to the reception venue on Saturday. Temperature in the 30’s. My sister and brother arrived about ten thirty after a day of travel from Okanogan and New York City and I drive around in circles to pick them up curbside at the airport. So that is the iPhone update. Marlene brought cookies from Hardy Va. We are gathering in to celebrate Laura and James. He’s holding the toasting glasses from my parents used by Mark and Erika at their wedding and the framed legend of the cookie table,borrowed from a teacher friend(thanks Amy ) and ready to grace the actual cookie table at the wedding. Tomorrow morning all these items will be delivered to the Athenaeum. Thanks for all the well wishes and love. I am grateful.

    I think they look great. We’ll see you soon. Could you warm Columbus up for us? It’s cold in the Burgh.
