One wedding and two birthdays...

Yesterday, August 13, was just one of those beautiful days. My friend, Kimberly, and her sweetheart, Aaron, were married in the smallest of ceremonies with 75 of their closest friends in attendance.

Her wedding was actually pretty informal...still wasn't sure which dress of wear as of last Thursday...didn't have shoes on Saturday...but by Sunday all was well.

We had decided to have the wedding party here at White Picket Gardens (that was decided a long time ago) so I spent the week end getting ready for the event....borrowing chairs from neighbors, arranging roses and plates and the wine bar.

It was a beautiful day with the perfect temperature....not a cloud in the sky. The house was jam-packed with folks...babies...old folks...from one end to the other just sharing in their happiness.

By the time all was picked up Aaron and Karen came over to share in his birthday (and Adam's, although Adam is in Florida) twins are now very old (can't bring myself to give their ages!!)

All in was a friend and family day...I love days like that. Let's just hope they all live happily ever after.
