a rehearsal dinner.
so one of my favorite things in life. for fun. is decorating.
and of lately. fresh flower arranging.
i suppose having 5 kids in 8 years
[4 of those 5 kids were born in 5 1/2 years] :))
took up years of my life.
years which i LOVED, and sometimes wish i could go back too...
now that they are growing up so quickly.
and require less "hands-on" of me...
i have more time to myself.
or maybe i have learned that i need to make time for myself?
i am not sure?
probably a little bit of both.
i CAN say, it is much easier to make time for yourself, when the children
are old enough to watch themselves...
and do not require so much of me.
[being married to a farmer, means there is kinda no scheduling.
the "count on you watching the kids" never happened much
on a "scheduled" basis...when they were littles]
regardless. i am able to have more "me" time lately.
which is really. fun.
i guess i grew up watching my mom do both.
decorating and flower arranging.
and funny. now i like to do the same.
i had the fun priviledge of decorating
The Beale Manor
for a wedding reception a couple months ago.
basically, the mother of the groom told me i could do whatever i wanted.
that is the BEST kind of party to decorate for. :))
the bride's color's were: gray and yellow.
that's all i had.
my lovely friend, Rhonda, stopped by to capture a few photo's.
they are perfect.
