I’ve been absent from the blog, but I’ve had good reason. Since I last posted, so much has happened…
I had a birthday and got a surprise visit from friends to celebrate. My love passed the California Bar Exam. My best friend got married. And I am now an aunt for the second time. Minus turning another year older, all great things.
For my birthday, we took an overnight trip to Paso Robles to visit the wineries. Although I am not a huge wine buff and there are not all that many I like, it was a fun time.
My love passed the California Bar Exam and I got to be there when he was sworn is as a California attorney. I’m so very proud of him.
I played co-hostess at my best friend’s bridal shower. In all my years, it is the first bridal shower that I have been to. If you are ever in the Milwaukee area, Swig has some delicious food. I highly recommend the the Barbeque Beef Sandwich and the Turkey & Apple Club. Yum!
I got to spend some quality time with my niece Riley. I love spending time with her when I can, since it isn’t very often living 2000 miles apart. 3 years old and about to become a big sister for the very first time!
Then there was a Bachelorette party that I had the privilege of planning. It was a fun time and I hope I succeeded in making it a special ‘last night out’ for the bride. A separate blog post to come with all the projects I made for the party.
And then the main event…
My best friend got married. Stephanie and Charlie were married in a beautiful ceremony at a private estate and I am so happy that I could be there as they embarked on this new journey together.
Last but certainly not least…
My new niece Jordynn was born on Tuesday July 1st, 2010 and now I am an aunt for the second time. I can’t wait to see her in person since she waited until 2 days after I left Wisconsin to make her appearance. Riley is going to make a great big sister!
Soon to come…
