now i know, i know, this is my old home, and i have a new home now, but i like to think of it as home #1 and home #2.
home #1 will always be where my husband is, but bridgewater va will always be my home too...and o how i have missed home #2. it has been so good being back!!!! seeing my parents, some of my siblings, my church family, my friends...such a blessings!!!!
so yeah, my favorite "home" is definitely w/ my husband, but as far as location is concerned, it's going to take any place a long time to ever be more of a home than my lovely bridgewater, va.
this past saturday my hubby and i headed out for the airport in international falls
mmmmm....such a good-lookin' escort!!!
just had to kiss him!!!!
some evidence of the cold weather we've been having...
i don't have any pics of the rest of the trip, but i'll give you a lil' glimpse into what i've been up to since i've been home.
#1 was to make my bridesmaid dress for amber's wedding!!! which is the whole reason i am here in the first place :)
yay for a mom who can sew!!! i helped her cut it out, but she did all the sewing :)
can't wait for saturday when i get to celebrate the wedding of one of my best friends!!! i've been married for just under 3 months, but i'm already a big fan!!! she's in for a treat :)
while mom worked on my dress, i began another project :)
i'm making a quilt for mom's next book!!!!
this is her first book :)
check it out at her website: http://delightfulpiecing.com
it's pretty amazing!!!!
so yesterday mom and i went to patchwork plus and picked out the 45 fabrics needed for a pattern called "pinwheel spin."
i did all the cutting yesterday.
then i worked several hours on laying it all out...it takes a while to get all the pinwheels to coordinate so that they don't blend into each other! you switch that one w/ this one and then you swith this one with that one, but eventually you get it!!!!
can't wait to see how it all turns out :)
today mom and i are going to sew the day away :)
o, and i would like everyone to know that i enjoyed my first diet mtn. dew since i've gotten married yesterday!!!! mmmmmmmmmmmmm....so so so amazing!!!! apparently canadians are not so hyped on the stuff :( which is only slightly understandable considering they are not allowed to have caffeine in any light colored pops... :(
well, that's all i got for now, but i would just like to say again before i go, that it is so so so good to be home!!!!
