Jackie's bridal showerI

Yesterday I helped the maid of honor throw a beautifully successful bridal shower for my daughter Jackie!  We had so much fun with the shower games!  The wedding is just nine days away!  Today Jackie announced that she was using one of the gifts her dad and I gave her at the shower ceremony!  Several months ago Bob and I went to a Native American festival and I found a beautiful framed Native American wedding poem. Jason and Jackie both loved it so much they are using it as their wedding vows! I knew when I found it all those months ago that they would love it for their decor but now it is actually incorporated into the ceremony I love that!

This is Jackie

My daughter Jackie's wedding day is fast approaching and trying to get all the last minute things that need to be done is overwhelming me!  I have less than 2 weeks before her bridal shower and I still have so much to do.  Ten days after that is her wedding day!  My beautiful daughter is going to be a wife.  How the years have flown in the blink of an eye.   Starting a new job at this hectic time has been a challenge along with returning to school, my cup runs over. Today I am off to pick up Brandon's suit for the wedding, alterations are complete!  I must pick up items needed for the shower and try to finish purchasing the gifts I want for her. This requires a trip to the lingerie shop.  I hope I can find something without a trip to Priscilla's  not only do I find it difficult to walk in to that store but it is quite a drive from the sleepy town of Farmville. Alas I must do what I must!
