We've also made so much progress on the wedding this week! Not that you want an update but I'm a list person and it will make me feel so accomplished to list it all out for you, so humor me.

Bridal portrait appointment✅
Mother of the bride dress
Oh, wait. We seem to be missing a check mark.
So, my friend, Michelle, who is a two-time groom's mother, is going shopping with my friend, Valerie, and me on March 20. Valerie, a soon-to-be groom's mother, and I are going to glean from Michelle's experience in this area of maternal dress as Valerie and I are just rookies. Michelle was my matron of honor 25 years ago today. Bless her heart.....she didn't know that was an appointment that carries over to the weddings of future generations.
I was determined to write something, tonight, even if it has turned out to be like buckshot.....going off in all different directions and hitting a lot of stuff. But, I sat down to write and my head was pounding so I got in the shower to let the hot water run over my head. I got out feeling better and then the Mississippi State and Ole Miss basketball game came on. Which went into overtime. At which point, I decided that 90% of basketball is shooting free throws but I couldn't stop watching it even though I'm only mildly interested in the sport. So, I got a late start writing and from the looks of this post, I should have just written the week off as a loss and let you go on with your lives but, no, here I am babbling.
So, I'm really looking forward to our trip. I still have a lot to do before we go! I've been married to Davis more than half my life and I want to write about that when I have the time and mental energy to do it justice. But, for now, I'll just say there are a lot of things we wish we could go back to in this picture sitting in the back of a limousine with birdseed in our hair. Like our trim figures. Our smooth, young skin. Our whole lives in front of us. And even more significant at this point......the day when catering was $10 a head.
Happy Anniversary to my sweet Davis!
We'll see y'all next week!
