Hello there! I'm Kathleen, a former art teacher and co-creator of two young boys. I'm perpetually in search of creative ways to spice up our daily lives, and always in search of a good cup of coffee and a knitting project. Join us in our adventures in making and doing, and making do.
There's nothing like a wedding to make you appreciate family and life's significant milestones. This past weekend, the boys and I participated in my youngest brother's wedding. Despite the stress of managing two energetic kids, it was a wonderful occasion for us.
And little boys in suits just melt my heart. As well as little brothers getting married.
Not to be outdone, here's both boys, along with Uncle Jeff and Daddy.
I only wish that I could have been present more during the whole occasion, but with children, that's nearly impossible. I missed out on the exit from the church, most of the speeches, the first dance (saw it from behind many heads) and the cake cutting, but at least the kids were tended to and didn't go running off into the catering kitchen or down the hill of the gorgeous, massive estate where the reception was held.
The bride and groom looked radiant and happy, as they usually do. I wish I had gotten some better photos but I left my better camera at the hotel.
SoJo and Jude were completely exhausted, as you can see above, having been up early (by their own accord, not because we needed to be anywhere at 5:30am) and having stayed up late. But we muddled through and still enjoyed ourselves.
Thanks to my sister-in-law Ashley for this photo!
We have about 4 more weddings to attend this year (it's the younger set of cousins now tying the knot on my side), so I'll have plenty more practice for being mindful and enjoying the moment. And not forgetting my good camera.
