Last week, one of my dearest friend's - Ranch Wife - daughter was hitched. The bride also happens to be college girl's best friend and we headed to Texas for a Texas-sized celebration. This darling girl has been eagerly awaiting this day.
Here is her Mama, doing her imitation of Marilyn Monroe. Let me tell y'all - that little ole- cabin was HOT and the discovery of this little vent pretty much required a pose like this. You wear it well dear friend - you wear it well:
And what is a wedding without the darlingest kidlets on the planet?
I was delighted to be asked to keep a watchful eye upon the newest addition to the family - and let me tell you - this sweet thing was just catching a nap in preparation for a night of dancing. She took a particular shine to Johnny Cash.
These two are an awesome example of what a Godly marriage looks like and this gal has a good foundation as she and her groom begin building their own:
The man of her dreams hails from Delaware - he's been a heck of a sport finding his footing in a foreign country - and yes, Texas is a foreign land in comparison to Delaware. However, he has a heart for God and this dear girl - I'd say that's a combination that's hard to beat:
This little handsome guy is just too cute for his own good:
With a face like this, he's going to get away with a lot, but he's being raised right:
And here's our girl with her beau. The fact that she's wearing a dress makes this a major event, but she'd do just about anything for Sara. There was a bit of a glare from her before and after I took this shot, but I told her she cleans up good and with that good lookin' man by her side, I knew his Mama would want a picture. Back me up on that Sandra. :)
The next morning Ranch Wife carted us down to the creek bed and let us pick wild plums for jam. This was a good year for wild plums and I just wanted to move right in with her Mama and live right there on the bank of the creek:
12 of us bedded down that night in this gorgeous home and one by one we all wandered out onto the porch and ended up being serenaded by good cowboy music and church hymns on Sunday morning:
It just does a body and soul a world of good to begin the day this way:
And it just doesn't get any sweeter than these two - their tummies and spirits were being fed - J, you and J have the most precious children and you're doing an amazing job raising them:
I'm having a heck of a time getting to the computer these days, but I'll be back soon...I've got plum jam to blog about!
