Currently – Wedding Edition – November 2019

It’s time to link up with Anne of In Residence and see what everyone is CURRENTLY up to.  We all follow the same prompts–they change each month–and it’s fun to see how everyone responds! Our son got married last month, so I’m spinning this month’s prompts in a past-tense, wedding direction! I am CURRENTLY, or I RECENTLY: Picked:  My mother-of-the-groom dress, and I just love it!  I felt like a princess all day!  (Oh, the power of alterations for a…

Then autumn started, and all our attention was focused on our son’s wedding!  HOORAY!!!  It was lovely and beautiful and amazing!  Two weeks after that…

Smith State Park which is about an hour or so from us.  We’ve been several times but never when the cypress trees change color for fall.  I’m determined to get pictures of that. Speaking of…
