Just in case you were wondering - Yes, we did it.

We got married!

We had only family at the wedding which worked out wonderfully.
I had one sister to the photography, another do the flowers, and had my little 
granddaughter, Lily as the flower girl.  She was SO EXCITED to have such a fun and important job.  She danced all the way back to her seat. 

I loved the way our wedding cake turned out.  (I saw something similar on Pinterest and did hire someone to make it.)
My daughters and I did the arbor and I think it turned out nicely.

It was Bruce's desire to have a big BBQ after our ceremony.  My backyard was the perfect place.  (Now it's "our" backyard.)  Bruce knew that I wouldn't want to leave that pool in the summer time and stay in his house. So his is up for sale

We had a wonderful honeymoon at the beach. 
We went back to the place that Bruce proposed to me.
Walked along the wooden pier - I just love wooden piers. 

 There's just something about sitting, soaking up the warmth and watching the waves.

We also spent some of our honeymoon time doing this
I had an over crowded house.  My garage was stuffed with furniture, boxes, tools anything and everything you could think of.  Then Bruce had his three bedroom house to combine with mine. 

The only answer..
We had the BIGGEST sale. My three car garage was PACKED!

Sold tons of stuff, gave away tons of stuff and then called out Salvation Army to take the rest.

Now my garage is almost empty.

Most of the house had been reorganized. 
It feels so good to not have that burden of "stuff" anymore.

By the way Bruce is the real organizer.  I used to be pretty good, but over the years have lost the ability.  Although I never would have held a candle to him.

Our plan is to continue working on it Saturday.

So no sewing for me for a while,

In the meanwhile, I'll just enjoy the projects I see you working on.
