My brother and his younger daughter came in to town this weekend, and we spent Friday together making salsa. I taught them how to can. Like most things, it’s dead simple: be meticulously clean and follow directions.
Then my oldest sister arrived, and we all went to my favorite pizza joint for a local-ingredients-only pizza.
Saturday morning, I got my hair teased high and put on my prettiest summer dress. Then to church, where I witnessed my eldest nephew and his elegant bride as they promised to cherish each other for ever more.
Aren’t they a lovely couple? They led the fun at their reception, which was replete with a sweets bar (oh, the honeybees in this family loved it!) and a photo booth (I want one in my back yard).
Here I am, yukking it up with the groom’s dad, my oldest brother.
Sunday morning, with the help of my oldest sister, I cooked up a brunch for 21. We had a laid-back time, enjoying the beautiful weather and each other. Family weekends are a rare, fabulous treat.
I’m happy that my nephew has embarked on a new adventure with a partner who seems just perfect for him.
What are you happy about this week?
