New Beginnings

Granddaughter Emily and Scott are now Mr. and Mrs. Scott H. Campbell, with the good wishes and blessings of hundreds of guests at the wedding and reception. A more beautiful wedding would be hard to imagine. Christy's artistry with the flowers in a historically beautiful church and the reception area enhanced the joy and happiness of the beautiful young bride and groom, along with their several attendants.

The rehearsal dinner on Saturday evening was a lot of fun, with a room full of family and friends honoring the bridal couple with toasts and more good wishes. A delicious selection from the restaurant's menu added to the total pleasure of the event.

The whole week was a whirlwind of activity for us, with our daughter and her family here from Maryland for 10 days. We had several meals at area restaurants - sampling the fares of Thai, Chinese, Fried Chicken and a Steakhouse, in addition to a little home-cooking (on the side). Our barbeque supper for the Family August Birthday celebration dinner the previous Sunday was good, and well-received, too.

Now the grandsons are or will be headed off to their respective colleges, to begin those new adventures. One heads west and the other goes east... and we wish them both the very best that life has to offer as they spread their wings.

The Maryland family flew back yesterday, and our house got unreasonably quiet - immediately. Life goes on, though, with appointments and responsibilities on the calendar just like always.

I have truly enjoyed reliving the wedding activities through technology and albums posted by family members and friends on Facebook. Such FUN!

As an aside, both the lawnmowers are repaired now, and are back at home waiting for the next session wish tall grass.
