Busy Time!

Thanks to all my faithful followers who have let me know they've missed me in Blogland!  I have been busy with family events -- Christmas, our son's wedding, our anniversary trip, and a trip to Nashville to help out after my sister's surgery.

I posted a few photos from our Christmas celebrations in a previous post, and then we immediately plunged into the final preparations for the rehearsal dinner and the wedding.  Everything went smoothly, and it was a beautiful and meaningful wedding in our church, followed by a lovely reception.  The newlyweds are back from their honeymoon and enjoying settling into their new apartment.  Here's a photo of the happy couple!
The wedding was held on our 38th wedding anniversary, the 30th, so New Year's Eve was spent taking down Christmas decorations, and on New Year's Day we flew to Las Vegas for a few days of R&R.  The day after we returned, I flew to Nashville to be with my sister and her family following her major surgery.  She is doing very well, and we enjoyed our time together.  It snowed while I was there, so that was fun to see, as we don't get much snow in central Texas!

I hope to get back to tablescaping -- and perhaps writing reviews for some of the tablescaping books I received for Christmas -- very soon!  Thanks for bearing with me during this extra-busy time for my family!
