Trying to get back in the loop!

   So...Have you been looking for me?...No?....Good.  
Cause I've been a bad, absent blogger.

And if by chance you HAVE been looking for me...I apologize. 
I got distracted...again.  

You see, at the end of this summer, 
our daughter Becky got married!  

 The wedding took place in a beautiful park, on a PERFECT day. 
Blue skies, warm temps, no humidity!

Lots of gorgeous flowers, handpicked by some of us ladies at a local commercial flower farm owned by one of Becky's church members 
-- " Help yourself". And arranged by another.
Such kindness, and such fun!

 Becky and her now-husband, Aaron, live and work in a neighborhood where they're able to assist many of the families and their children. 
So, of course, the little girls just HAD to be in the wedding!
Eighteen flower girls with custom made skirts, 
and t-shirts that say "I'm a flower girl!"

 Groomsmen are ready to go.

 Bride side?...READY!

 This is it!

 Not too many surprises. 
Well, maybe just that the groom was barefoot....
Oh, and that instead of exchanging rings, they had tattooed "rings" onto their fingers earlier that week.   

And  they ended the ceremony with the washing of each other's feet.
Hadn't seen THAT before, but it was kind of cool.  

 "Did we do it?"..."Yep, we did it!"

Of course, Mom had to snap a few pics of her snazzy brood!

 But I think it's better left to the professionals!

 They seem to know what they're doing.

 Meanwhile, the guests were  heading up for the food and festivities.

 I was able to include a few of my creations to the decore.

 And SOOO many of Becky's friends had pitched in 
to help in SOOO many ways.
Her friend made this cake topper for them!  Adorable!

 Of course there was a lot of fun, laughter, and KICKBALL!

 And dancing!!

It was a great wedding, a lot of fun!
Afterward, the happy couple didn't end up riding off into the sunset happily ever after, but they DID head out for their honeymoom cruise!  
And the bike DID inspire ME down a new road 
-- which I'll share on my next post.


P.S.  My daughter Becky is quite a remarkable, giving young lady.  We were able to watch a tv news feature about her the other day for her role as a mentor.  She's one of 5 up for Michigan's Mentor of the Year and will find out next week at a Governor's dinner who the winner is. :)  (Just had to brag a little)
