My Heart Is Overflowing

Sometimes there just aren’t words to express the depth of my emotions – this weekend was one of times!!!

All of the hard work of last week and lost sleep was worth it to enjoy every second of the time with my family celebrating Chris’ big day!!!!

I’m beyond thankful to my family and Chris’ family and some of our very dear friends for coming to the ceremony and then helping us celebrate at the party!!!

My family and some of Chris’ spent almost as much time traveling during the weekend as time here with us.  Having them help celebrate made the day even more special!!!

I know how busy everyone is these days and the fact that our families basically dropped everything for a couple of days means more to me than anything.

Also, our friends who changed plans, worked around existing schedules and made it a priority to help celebrate with Chris are the greatest!!!

Even with everything going on (cooking and planning a party for 150+), hosting my family, going to Hunter’s final cross country meet…..I enjoyed every second of this past weekend!!!

I needed the time I normally spend blogging last week to prepare for the weekend and I’m happy that I took that time but I’m also happy to be back to normal blogging (and reading!!!) this week.

Happy Monday!!!

Kim
