Weddings and Excitement!
I had the priviledge to attend the wedding of my cousin Andrea and her (now) husband Jonny yesterday. Cole was able to switch his Friday to come down to the Salt Lake Temple with me, and we joined my family to welcome another member. I was the oldest grandchild on that side of my family, and was 14 when Andrea was born. I have been so proud to call her my cousin...she has grown into such an amazing young woman. She's very young, not quite 19, and her husband isn't much older. Seeing them together, though, it is quite obvious they are very in love, and our family feels like they are a good match.
After the ceremony and pictures, we headed up to La Caille for the wedding luncheon. The food was incredible, and the atmosphere so romantic. What a perfect day for the couple!
(I remember when this couple was also a very young bride and groom...and we're happier today than we were then...we didn't know how happy we really could be back then...and I'm sure we'll learn even more as we continue to grow older together.)
So, after the wedding, we headed out to a tropical fish wholesaler in SLC...and bought some beautiful black angelfish for our aquarium. Cole says he's going to take pics tomorrow, so check out the aquarium blog in the next couple of days if you want to see pictures.
Today was our normal cleaning day. The entire house is now clean, vacuumed, mopped, and scrubbed. This afternoon, we were a little restless and headed out to do a little window shopping...which turned out to be actual shopping. Look what's coming to my house, I'm so excited!!!!
Since Christmas, we've had our sectional in pieces to give our room a different look. We've always liked to change our furniture around on a regular basis, but with the odd shape of our kitchen/living room, we've not had many options. We've decided to try these few slightly smaller pieces, that will be more easily mobile, to see if we can change up our options a bit. 12 days, and they'll be here....I feel like everything in my home is finally coming together. When we moved in here, we had big plans for minor to moderate renovations. We've done a lot of what we wanted, until we take on the major renovation of expanding the house. We hope to be able to do that in about 5 years. Until then though, my house is starting to be nearly perfect for what we can have right now.
