What a whirlwind

Life has become a whirlwind around here since the wedding day! Freezing corn, making and canning spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce, and tomatoes has been my focus. I hope to find time this week to get some sewing done. I would love a few new tops for fall as well as some jeans.

Soccer games and practices are keeping the "mom's taxi" humming up and down the road!

Life is good. God is good. He just keeps finding ways to bless my socks off!

Blessings- Linda

The wedding day has come and gone. Son, Jason, is now a husband! These are just a few pictures of the many snapshots taken by us and grandma!

This photo is of our entire family.
Left to Right Back Row- Evan, 16, Jen, 28, Jason, 25, Me, Rick (dad). Front Row- Geordan, 10, Jenny, New daughter, Olivia, 8.

This is a photo of the entire wedding party. I made all the dresses including the bride's gown.

That was a tall order. I had some photos to work from. It is a knock off of a very expensive designer gown. Hard to see the details. I will post a better photo once we receive the ones from the photographer.

The beautiful couple. I made her veil too.

Lots of prayers and love went into this gown.

Mom and Dad with the groom, Jason.

I made my dress too. I hope to have a better shot of it later on too!

All in all, it was a wonderful day. She is a sweet girl and we are happy to have her join our family. I hope to not be a "Mother-in-law" but rather a second mom. A woman that she can trust to have her best interests at heart. My prayer for their marriage is that God becomes the central focus of their life together.

Trying my hand at this....

I am trying my hand at the blog thing. Not sure I will ever be able to accomplish what so many other women do with theirs..... I am already stuck. Would love one of those fancy ones that reflect my personality but have sttled for a standard template one..... someday when hubby is bored I will seek his help..... right now his work is overwhelming so I will be statisfied with what I have!

I feel like this might be a place where I can express myself so that I can "see" what I am thinking and feeling. Right now my life seems to be chaotic and that chaos is prohibiting me from thinking clearly...... we will see. Also want a place to share my sewing accomplishements (and disasters)!

Anyways, welcome. I hope you are not too bored with what is to come! Blessings- Linda
