Brand New Day




 




Hello darlings!

This weekend finds me back in my hometown to finish up some planning for my sister's bridal shower next week and meet-up with a very lovely blogger friend of mine - but more on that some other time.  

A couple Friday's ago, when the hubs and I were volunteering at our town fair, we got a frightening phone call and learned that a couple of our close friends were in a car accident, hit by a Mac truck. After hearing that the car had flip over into a ditch, we really didn't know what to expect as we quickly drove to see them at the hospital.  So when we arrived it was the biggest relief to see them up and moving about with no cuts, scrapes, or anything much worse besides some aches and pains.  Saying the whole thing was scary would be an understatement and saying that it is a miracle that they survived it nothing more than true.

In celebration of life we all picked up and headed to Philly the very next day :)  A brand new day to live is the quite possibly the best gift ever.

Have a splendiferous weekend my friends.  Catch you soon!

Love Bunches,

  5. Oh my, your story of your friends being in a car accident just sent shivers from my head to my toes. So so good that they were not badly hurt. It is in deed a wake up call to enjoy one's time to the fullest.

    I love these pictures. You look so cute in that dress and hat. My particular favourite is the one where you are giving who I assume is your beloved husband a kiss on the cheek!

    Have a great weekend, my sweet on-line friend.

  34. These are such cute pictures, my friend! Car accidents are so scary & unpredictable. I'm glad to hear that everyone was ok.

  35. awwww You two are so cute!!!!!!!!! I love your socks a lot by the way! Thank God that your friends were okay after such a major hit. One of my former youth pastors/leaders was hit by a mac truck and walked away and it sliced his car in half. It is a miracle when people survive such crazy things.
