It still feels surreal that it’s OUR wedding that is quickly approaching. But the planning and early gifts from friends and family remind me that it’s real and it’s happening.
Last weekend some of my best friends, my mother, and godmother hosted my bridal shower. And it was everything I wanted it to be!
Since you know the food is important to me let me tell you all about the snacks provided at this bridal shower. A simple green salad was paired with this amazing homemade poppy seed dressing that we found on Gimme Some Oven’s blog.
We had a yogurt bar – yes, a yogurt bar! – with lots of fruit and nut toppings. And there was a POPCORN BAR. I could eat popcorn for a meal every day and never get tired of it. The icing on the cake – or, rather, the cookies – was the Arkansas Razorback sugar cookies.
All of the bridesmaids were in attendance and nothing makes me happier. 🙂
We played games.
We took lots of silly photos.
Good times were had.
In other news, tomorrow I turn a quarter-century old and Wade and I just closed on our first house this past week. So many big life events going on at once!
Next time you hear from me I will be married. I wanted to leave you with the short anecdote that I’m having our officiant at our wedding – a.k.a. one of Wade and I’s great friends – read during the ceremony. Cheers to love!
“Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being “in love” which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Those that truly love, have roots that grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two.”
