My Son’s Barn Wedding

My son, Chase, got married in July! Some of you have been following me here since he was about 8 years old. Time flies!! He and his bride Katie were friends in high school and reconnected in their last years of college. I always hoped they would end up together! They were engaged in June and wanted to get married in July!😳 I had my doubts we could plan something that fast but we did it! It was very simple with close family and friends but turned out to be very special and sweet. We used baby’s breath, tulips, and button mums for the flowers and added Lillies to her bouquet. We had cupcakes instead of a wedding cake and also finger foods/charcuterie boards. Everything turned out great and they are very happy so that’s all that matters!!

Christmas Mantel 2021

Hello! I hope you are all having a wonderful start to the Christmas season. I’m still decorating, but wanted to share my mantel with you. I used the same garland I’ve used for the last few years, but changed the ribbon and added gold ornaments. I also made the wreath in the middle. I love that “Merry and Bright” sign I found at Walmart. This mantel is definitely one of my favorites! I will share more decorating pics with you soon!!
