March opened with the filming of my Missing Pieces Bible Study. I can’t even put into words how grateful I am for what God did. And, I cannot put into words how grateful I am that it is…OVER! Ha! (Relief is my favorite emotion!) I am incredibly grateful for the hundreds of ladies who came each night and were so supportive as the audience. If you want to see some behind the scenes pictures, check in here.
The following weekend after filming, I gave a “Honeymoon Tea” for Caroline and Clayton. They are getting married on May 18 – less than 2 months away! I sent invitations that included a white tea sachet and asked the ladies attending to fill it with a little cash for the honeymoon. When the ladies arrived, they placed their “tea bag” in a tea pot which Caroline took home. We used my great aunt’s silver service and lots of tea cups from friends and family. It was such a sweet time. I made crustless quiche and chocolate croissants. But, the best part of the menu was the blueberry scones we got from Hebrews Coffee. I have never tasted better scones! Anyway, it was a special time and an easy kind of shower both for the host and the guests – no shopping or wrapping or games! Yeehaw! If you want to see the video I sent Clayton from the tea, click here.
The teas I served were Good Earth Original Sweet and Spicy, Bigelow Plantation Mint, PG Tips and Tazo Zen Green Tea. One of the CD’s I played during the tea was Kathy Troccoli’s Heartsongs. My favorite song on that CD is “What a Wonderful World.” In fact, Clayton and I chose that song to dance to at the reception! I look forward to that, but to be honest, I’m not the most confident dancer, so I look forward to that being over, too! (Remember…relief is my favorite emotion!) Ha! Seriously, it will be so special and I love dancing with my men, though. Actually, Phil and I are taking lessons…and that’s a whole other drama I will tell you about later!
Well, that’s all.
