The Wood family headed out on the road once again in mid July on an 11 day, 7 state road trip. Along with seeing new sights and having lots of family time, we were looking forward to the joy of celebrating two weddings.
My dear friend and college apartment-mate, Jennifer and her betrothed, Matthew, were married on July 19th at a cute little church in Harriman State Park in New York. I was honored to be the Matron of Honor and had a wonderful weekend preparing for and celebrating Jenn’s wedding! The weather cooperated nicely (though I did get a wee sunburn), the band was so fun, and the bride and groom couldn’t have been happier. May their marriage be as beautiful as their wedding! (hear, hear!)
Less than a week later our friend Will and his 1st grade crush, Michelle, tied the knot. We attended the wedding with Grandma and Grandpa Wood and we all enjoyed seeing the beautiful interior of St. Vincent de Paul Church for the first time. There were bubbles and chocolates to satisfy the 3 year olds in all of us and Will and Michelle’s story was a beautiful reminder of how God works in our lives. We may have to wait 20some-odd years to know the true importance of the relationships we start today. Many congratulations to the new Mr and Mrs Farnham!
Stay tuned for Part 2: Visiting with Family and Friends
