It was a long weekend and a sweet one at that.

We made a whirlwind trip to Oklahoma City on 8/30 for a college friend’s wedding.  Miss Lyndse married Connor and it was all kinds of wonderful.  She is the DIY crafting QUEEN and it was evident that her heart was in all the fun decorations and little touches.

A few ceremony shots

I was honored a few weeks ago when Lyndse asked me to do a reading during the ceremony.  Here it is, for your reading pleasure, because there is no limit to the beauty of 1 Corinthians 13

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.


Clockwise from top left – there were sparklers! // and a popcorn bar!!  Amy’s choice – white cheddar — Kevin’s choice – caramel // let them eat cake! // but first, photograph the cake //


It was fun, as it always is, to reunite with these ladies.  We all went to Oklahoma State at the same time, and we knew each other, but our friendship really blossomed and bloomed after we had all graduated.  Since then, many-a girls’ trips have happened!  I hope we can keep that going for years to come.


I managed to rope myself a mighty handsome date for this wedding.  Which means it was a good time, because it is always a good time with him.


And there was a photo booth with some fun props.  Hers, His, and those who came for the cake.


A heartfelt wedding for a lovely bride and handsome groom.  Isn’t love splendid?

The following morning we met Tessa for breakfast at Kitchen 324.  What a treat – the food, yes, but mostly… – to see that girl and catch up!


The time to go to the airport came much too quickly.  We flew to Oklahoma at 11:25 Saturday and home at 11:35 on Sunday!

Which left just enough time for a nap and some reading before dinner at Kevin’s parents’ NEW house.  That’s right – they moved on Friday and it was the first Sunday dinner at the new digs.  I think it’ll do quite nicely.

Then it was Labor Day.  Not commonly found to be a holiday that inspires a lot of mush, LD now does just that for me.  Kevin proposed two Labor Days’ past.  (Here’s our engagement story.)  We celebrated the engagement anniversary big this year – laundry, a trip to the gym, and two straws in the Rudy’s sweet tea (such romance!).  There was also a great deal of reading as my little Harry Potter fan makes his way through The Order of the Phoenix (and I read it – again – over his shoulder!).

What a lovely weekend with friends, good food, and lots of love!

How was your weekend?  Did you refrain from all things laborious?
