My mother is going with me so that I'm not driving the 6 hour drive alone. She'll stay with my brother for a night and then with an old friend for two nights. This should be a fun getaway. It's just so much work to make the preparations to get going. Thanks to a very good friend of mine, I have jewelry and shoes all ready to go with the new dress I bought. I got my hair trimmed and color touched up today. Got eyebrows and lip waxed. Got some new make-up and a pedicure. Pictures will come later, I promise. I'm thinking right about now that this might be the last reunion I go to. It's a lot of work to get fixed up! It does make you feel pretty good, though.
Last Saturday we attended a beautiful wedding out in the woods of Pennsylvania at an Art School/Gallery. Sounds a little strange, I know. We thought so at first, too. But it was an outside wedding in these beautiful gardens and a gazebo and the weather was absolutely perfect! Here are some pictures
The groom is a very good friend of Austin, my oldest son. His mother is the same very good friend of mine that helped me with shoes and jewelry.
I'll be back home on Monday evening from my girl's getaway/reunion and then on Thursday I have family starting to arrive to my house for a big 4th of July party that we're having here on next Saturday.
I was starting to get a little overwhelmed and nervous the other day trying to get ready for all of this, and then I talked to myself and reminded me that this was all good stuff. Just breath, relax, and enjoy the good life. My self lecture worked and I woke up yesterday morning feeling renewed and energetic and sat with my early morning coffee and watched my birds.
I'll be in touch next week, with pictures and a reunion report, as soon as I get a chance!
