DH Grant had this week off work and I took Thursday and today to take care of the last details for the big weekend. Yesterday we drove out to the wedding venue to make the final payments and also for Grant to see the site--when he had visited it with me months ago, there was another wedding taking place and we were unable to get into the buildings or walk around the grounds. This time I played bride while he walked me down the path--without mishap--and we looked around the reception building, picturing where everything has been mapped out to go. Then we drove up to visit the caterer at her restaurant and I gave her the tablerunner I made for her as a thank you for working with the budget. She was so surprised I would be making her a gift and really liked it.
Here's a photo of it again. I guessed correctly that she favors pink and blue.
It was a perfect warm fall day in Southern California. On the way home we passed this pumpkin patch going up a big hill. It opens annually just beside the 101 Freeway, the farmland lined with palm trees. Can't you just guess where all the kids want to look for their pumpkins?
