love & marriage

Went to a pretty wedding today - a dear friend's first-born married her sweetheart.

I sat there listening to the pastor, listening like he was speaking to me.  The words he said rang true.. He spoke about standing by your partner when everyone else has gone, about getting through the hard times, about enjoying the good times, and about the ups and downs of living your life with one person, now and forever.

As I watched her dancing with all of her little flower girls and ring bearers (she had 5 of each!) I couldn't help but feel so lucky to be married to my best friend, and to hope for her the same thing.  I wish I could go to a wedding like every month! - it's good to hear the vows and promises again and again.  It makes you remember the vows you spoke, how special your relationship is, and to always, always put your marriage first.

I don't know about you, but I feel pretty lucky.  Happy marriage to you!

Love, Kelli

End of Summer Weekend

Summer is my most favorite season of all - it always make me a little sad as the kids go back to school and the hum drum routine starts back.  Then as the air starts to cool I suddenly remember all the fun fall things we get to do!  Football games, backyard fires, and drives through the Georgia mountains to look at the turning leaves - then I don't feel so sad :o)

We had our last of summer who-rah this weekend up in Blue Ridge with our best friends: eating out, watching football, shopping, boating, and plenty of adult beverages!  We had a great time, and as always, it flies by so fast and then it's over.  Came home to clean the house and get ready for the week (albeit a short one!).

And guess what?  I forgot to bring my camera along, so I only took like 3 pictures with my phone!  Bummer!  Actually we all forgot to bring our cameras so I can't even steal some!  Here is my husband and one of the other guys on the thing they pull behind the boat..  what's it called??

And here are the girls..  hehe!  I did ride it but no one took my picture!  yeay!  On the upper right side of my blog page you can see another picture of my besties on Instagram with their funny "tickle monster" gloves on - oh the jokes we made about those things... 

Hope everyone had a safe and fun Labor Day weekend!

Love, Kelli
