Special Times

It has been a whirlwind the last 3-4 weeks!
 Are you wondering what had kept me very busy and with such joy! 
Three events!

First Event
The wedding of my very niece Kate, who holds a very special part of my heart. The week before the wedding it was prep time - getting the house ready for the Bride and Groom to visit before their wedding. The week of the wedding was helping the Mother of the Bride, my sister with projects to make sure every wish was completed just as the bride and groom envisioned it. Then the magic began, 5 days of celebrating with family and friends the love, joy and happiness we all share.
 Kate and Per's wedding truly reflected the beauty and bounty of Portland Oregon!



Second Event
Happy Birthday Terry! A wonderful brother in law who's nature is giving, kind, compassionate yet strong. I am very happy to have him be part of my life!




Third Event
Block Party! The road barriers go up at each end of the block and grills, tables and neighbors fill the block. It was fun to color the invitation to the Block Party - 17 different color scheme for the houses!



Please share a special event that you had this summer in the comments. It is fun to share!

Enjoy!
