Blissful bridal shower weekend

What kind of weekend did you have? Was it peaceful and restful, filled with errands and running around or did something touch you deep inside forever? My weekend was a combo of all three. I was touched by many people and reminded that life is short and wonderful all at the same time. No wonder I feel tired today...

Sometimes I wish my mornings could start off like this. Just lounging in bathrobes while someone else makes breakfast. And yet I love to feel the dance of cooking. I feel useful and proud of what I create in the kitchen.

And my bridal shower was yesterday and it was lovely. Women, men and children (even my goddaughter who calls me her Fairy godmother) all came together to celebrate in the moment of Honey and I getting married. The flowers, boutique cake and thoughtful gifts just made me smile.



I loved how my best friend, who'd also a fourth grade teacher, created the bridal games. I looked up to see my future mother in law and cousin trying to guess my favorite actor or shoe size. Plus some of my loved ones got competitive. It was a lot of fun! (For shower ideas try here ClassyBride.com)



The stars must have aligned as we all bonded and got to know one another.

It didn't matter what background, city you were raised, thoughts about cultures blending were. All that mattered was love, warmth and care.

And so my lovely readers, with only 8 weeks to go to our wedding I'm getting very excited to see all the people we love in one room. So this is what they mean when they described unconditional love. How was your weekend sweetie?
