So I think it's official... I'm a bad blogger! I always come here to write a post with good intentions of posting more regularly, but then I still can't seem to do it. And here it is August, and my last post was the 1st day of January! And it's sad, too, because LOTS has happened since my last post! The biggest news is, my oldest daughter, Sarah, is getting married! Yeah, and the proposal and engagement happened at the end of January, and I'm just now posting this?! See.... told you I'm a bad blogger! LOL

Anyway, over the past 6+ months since Sarah and Jeremy got engaged, I've been going through SO many different emotions! Happiness for her, sadness for me, nostalgic moments thinking about her birth and childhood, and how FAST that has gone by, and MORE! So of course we've been in the throw's of wedding planning, and of course it's wedding planning on a BUDGET, because finances are still not great, but God has and is providing in so many ways for this wedding. It's very much a DIY wedding, but that has actually made it more fun, in many ways! I'm a huge bargain hunter anyway, and Sarah has followed in my footsteps in that, so we've had lots of fun finding those wedding bargains. And God has blessed us with finding them for SURE!  So, September 28 is the date. And yes, that's less than 2 months away! So I'm starting to get a little stressed, but it's all good. Here's a couple of pictures of the happy couple and Sarah's silly sisters (who are both her maids of honor in the wedding). :)

So, over the next several weeks, I'm really going to TRY and chronicle some of our wedding planning experiences, and my thoughts and emotions as we go through this time. I HAVE come to the conclusion that this transition takes time to adjust to just like it took time to adjust when I found out I was pregnant with her. It's hard to explain, so perhaps I will be able to share more on that as we count down the weeks to the wedding.

So until next time..... and here's one more picture... one of my favorites, actually, because it makes me laugh every time I look at it. :)
