Ok...I probably need to clarify for those who haven't known me all my life
Our son Charles married Jena January 15
Our daughter Mattie is marrying Coach Been June 30
You will find both girls in this photo
Jena is 3rd Mattie is 5th
These four precious souls have known each other almost their entire lives
It's small town stuff. Nothing more cool than all of the graduates in your class being able to sit on a stage and 95% of them chums from K-12, or your daughter having the same 4th grade math teacher as you did, or that your granddaughter will have the same classroom at the same school that her mother did AND her grandmother did...
I think God let's kids get born in towns they need to live in so they can marry the person He has picked for them. If you have gone off and married someone you met far away from where you grew up then that is just as much a masterful plan.
Jena's shower was a few weeks ago hosted by my bffs
Mattie's shower was April 21 which just so happened to be her late Granddad's birthday
also hosted by my bffs
We live in a town where our children are showered and I mean SHOWERED with gifts, anything and everything they select. Often times they are asked to come back a time or two to select more. It's what we do here. We shower, we honor, we love.
It's old fashioned
I'm telling you what..
there is a whole lot of love swirling around this town, this family
and this heart of mine
My cup runneth over
