Happy Two Monthiversary!

sd21Sorry I’m a week late.

1 Down; 14 To Go

In 2013, John came up with a brilliant idea of creating a yearly bucket list of places to go and things to do which has become an annual tradition. We’ve found shark’s teeth, visited Florida’s springs, swam with manatee, and watched the sunrise over the Atlantic and the sunset over the Gulf in the same day.

It’s hard to believe we didn’t complete the first item on the 15 in 15 list until midway through February, but it was a big one. Sarah’s and Daniel’s wedding marked the first event in our list of 15 in 15, and what an event!

The culmination of days of decorating and months of preparation, Sarah and Daniel walked down the aisle and said “I do” on Saturday, February 14th.

Then off to the reception to spend time with family and friends celebrating Mr. and Mrs. Daniel and Sarah Patty. #PattyParty2015

It may have taken six weeks to reach the 1 down, 14 to go mark, but it was well worth it! Congratulations Sarah and Daniel.

A Fresh Start for Saturday

Another day of wedding preparation began at Fresh Vintage Salon in Ocala with a wedding day hair trial.


Then off to Oviedo to Sew & Tell for wedding dress alterations.

Finally a stop at both sister’s houses to pick up completed projects and dishes and to drop off projects still in progress.

A good excuse for a little mother daughter time.


Showered with Love!

Only two days after Christmas Sarah was showered with gifts.

Time with friends from elementary, middle, and high school as well as college…

And lots of family…sisters, aunts, cousins, grandmother, as well as her almost family.

Sarah was lucky to be showered not only with gifts, but with the love of so many family and friends. What a fun day!


Holy, moly, Sarah’s getting married!

I know this is no news flash. Daniel asked Sarah to marry him in August, and we’ve been making preparations for the last four months.

However, addressing and mailing the invitations made me realize the wedding is just around the corner.

Pen and ink out and after a little hand writing practice the invitations were addressed, return addresses stamped in gold, and envelopes stuffed and ready for postage.
They’re in the mail. Sarah and Daniel are getting married on Valentine’s Day…in only seven weeks!
