Happy Weekend!

Thank goodness it's Friday and another bonus, 
the sun will be gracing us with her warm presence around here.

I'm excited to have a weekend of some hopeful relaxing, 
hope you all get to do the same!

Peter & Andrea's Wedding

I have twin brothers and they are the babies of the family.
The youngest of the twins, Peter got married a couple weeks ago.
It was a beautiful ceremony and dinner at the lovely Ghidotti's restaurant in Park City.

I'm happy for Peter and his new bride Andrea,
I wish them all the best in their beautiful life they'll be creating together!

And now some pictures from the fabulous event.

You must not lose faith in humanity.  Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of
the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.
~ Mahatma Gandhi

I will try and remind myself of this quote the next time I hear
of another tragedy happening in the world, I will really try.

It was a busy wedding weekend around these parts, 
needless to say I'm exhausted on this Monday.

My youngest brother got married on Friday
{wedding pics to come soon}, 
I played hostess to a cousin in town for the wedding, 
we went to a tulip festival on Saturday and by Sunday
I crashed on the couch, but it was a good time.

1/2. Blossoms everywhere, pedi's for all the ladies of the wedding party
3/4. My whole family {trying to snap photos with that many people is comical}, all us siblings
5/6. The newlyweds, sister-in-law with niece & nephew
7/8. More nieces, tulip festival

Showered with Love

My family threw a shower for my
sister-in-law to be {getting married in a week to be exact}.

We love throwing parties so it was
a fun thing for us ladies to collaborate on.

Here are some pics from the fun event.

Some pics from Easter Sunday.
Not only am I grateful for my Savior and his resurrection but also
for family traditions that have us gathered around eating
ham and all the other traditional foods, watching the
kids trying to find easter eggs and our traditional photos in
front of the 'tree'.

Hope everyone's Easter was wonderful!
