Adrian and I had a wonderful weekend! We road tripped to attend a wedding of a childhood friend and visit my alma mater. We got to stay with my cousin and his wife, saw many longtime friends, enjoyed a white chocolate/espresso shake at my favorite coffee house in the world, saw some favorite professors, basked in the beauty and meaning of a wedding ceremony, looking forward to ours upcoming, and stayed with a set of "adopted grandparents" on their farm and enjoyed a home-cooked "farm dinner", wonderful visiting and a stroll along a country road. Perfectly delightful.
I'll leave you with one photo of the beautiful wedding but don't want to post anymore without securing the bride and groom's permission.

Last week was teacher appreciation week.
I received this lovely rose from a second grade boy and it continues to bring me enjoyment.
God makes beautiful things, doesn't He?
Our PTO brought us these cupcakes with our pictures on top!
And they brought us a little breakfast treat one day with a water bottle with our pic on it, and a little crystal light to go packet, a yogurt and a muffin!
It was a nice week. Tonight is my first grade musical, I also got a strange urge to rearrange my classroom (which I did) and after this week there are only three weeks left of school! Here comes summer! Kelly
On Friday, after school, I had stopped in at Michael's to buy a birthday gift and per usual sorted through the dollar ribbon bin to see if there was anything good. Lately I haven't found that much but last Friday I hit the jackpot so to speak. I bought this brown gingham ribbon. I don't know if it will fit into the wedding in anyway (welcome bags?) since brown is a fall color but it's not really the wedding colors but brown gingham ribbon can be used in so many ways for packages, decorating, etc. that I snatched it up.
These are my wedding color ribbon finds of the weekend! Spools from Michael's dollar ribbon bin and striped ribbon in glass canister from Canton. Doesn't it look like ribbon candy? Yellow has not figured into the wedding colors before but I liked this color yellow and perhaps some little snatches of yellow will make an appearance in a few places or perhaps not. We'll see.
