    Here it is, January 1st and we leave 2 weeks from tomorrow for Maggie's wedding! Where did all the time go?? I thought I had everything on my end pretty much under control but then there were a lot of little changes...we aren't using the logo ( the one Heidi and Robin so kindly helped me with), changes in colors for a theme,etc. You all know what I mean! So now, I need to get in fast mode. Then, on top of Christmas and RETAIL!, I got some really sad news 2 nights ago. I don't know if I ever told you ladies about my dad. He died 2 years ago Thanksgiving at 90 years old. When he was 85 he got a letter from his high school sweetheart. They spent the last 5 years of his life as if there had been no lapse in time. They were so cute!! The week of Thanksgiving Buzz and I had lunch with Virginia. She likes to honor the anniversary of his death. We knew she had plans with her own children for Christmas so we planned to get together again after the holidays. Saturday night when I came home from work Buzz handed me the newspaper. As you have already guessed, Virginia was in the obituary. She had died on Christmas day. No one called us to let us know and the obit only ran for the day before the funeral. I am so sad. She was one of the most beautiful people I have ever known. The world has lost true lady!
    So, lots has been happening and not a whole lot of it is wedding stuff. So somebody kick me in the arse! I need to get this crap done, and fast!
    For the dance, at the reception, Maggie wore her crinoline and a lovely lace top. Looks like Tadd likes it!

      I'm sorry to hear about Virginia That is sad news.

      As for the wedding stuff, I hear ya! We leave for Jamaica the 15th, my work schedule is jammed for the next 2 weeks, and I still have about a million little things to do! Yesterday we were food shopping and FI was like, "is it too early to buy travel toothbrushes and stuff?" Um, hello? We are running out of time! It is not too early for anything - lol! Everything will get done and I'm sure Maggie's wedding will be beautiful :)

                LIzzy I'm sorry to hear the news on Virginia. That's a really touching story about them being high school sweethearts though. I'm a sap when it comes to things like that.

                So 2 more weeks and you're off to Mexico?! Party time!!!!

                    Lizzy, I'm so sorry to hear about Virginia. I'm glad your dad was able to spend the last few years of his life with her though.
                    I can't believe Maggie's wedding is almost here. I'm sure it will turn out wonderful!!!
