Tying The Knot

Donning my pearls for a special occasion


This weekend The First Sergeant and myself were guests at a dear friend's daughter's wedding.
Is there anything sweeter than a simple, country style wedding, surrounded by all things good in life, friendship, food and fellowship.....


Simple yet elegant, the wedding theme was the perfect combination of Southern charm and romance.


Congratulations to the gorgeous bride and handsome groom, we wish you a lifetime of happiness together.


"Come, let's be a comfortable couple and take care of each other! How glad we shall be, that we have somebody we are fond of always, to talk to and sit with. "

~Charles Dickens

Great blog. I too love those jars, they look green
I bet you can't find them anymore. Are they very old?

Jeri Landers said...

My goose, Fiona, is green with envy for your pearls. Love the candles in mason jars, how quaint and charming! And Charles Dickens is THE man!
