Blog Binge!

It has been a world wind these last few months.  We have managed to graduate our son, move in to our new home and in the final planning stages of our daughter's upcoming wedding. As much as I wanted to capture each of the moments on the blog, time hasn't allowed for it.  So, here is a binge post on these last few months.

Our son graduated early June, class of 2016.  It was a proud day and a fast one at that.  He graduated within the top 10% of his class.  All our family were there to support him.  We later transitioned him into college life, but I have a separate post coming on that. 

We celebrated our daughter's 25th birthday with her closest of friends. This will also be her last birthday as a single woman.  We are just a couple of months away from her big day! 

I had the most blessed pleasure of hosting my childhood friends for lunch at our new home.  I made green chile chicken enchiladas with rice. We shared a bottle of wine and talked for hours! We talked about our upbringings and shared old stories. We even celebrated one of us (not me) becoming a grandma! It was such a wonderful day. 

We visited the Bridal Extravaganza once more before wedding day.  The event is a huge marketplace with all sorts of wedding related vendors.   It was just my daughter, her fiance, my husband and myself that attended.  We went to walk around and get some last minute things covered. It was a fun day! 

So, there it is.... a blog binge! There is more to come! We are wrapping up the final details to the wedding day.  This is the day, the only day... I get to have the Mother of the Bride title.  I am doing my best to take in this moment as much as possible.  I want this season to last as long as it can.
