The Bride-To-Be


Taylor's going to the chapel and she's gonna get married....
She's absolutely beaming and going to make my nephew a beautiful bride. Shilo and I went to Condon, Oregon last weekend for the bridal shower, driving down meandering farm country roads to get there. The shower was held out the Hotel Condon which Taylors family owns and has beautifully restored to it's former splendor. We were greeting by the lovely bride, her mother and sister. We were seated across the table from both Taylor's boss and my nephews boss for some stimulating conversation over a lunch of rosemary bread, ceasar salad and chicken fettucinne. Delicious! I'm still kicking myself that I didn't take any pictures of lunch and the beautiful table settings.


Shilo and I had planned on sneaking out a bit early since we had a 5 hour drive in front of us, so Taylor decided to open our gifts first. (I ended up getting caught up in the unwrapping and stayed until she was finished!) Taylor loves to cook and had mentioned to my sister the other day that she needed an apron, which is one of the things that I had planned for her. Taylor's very cute and was really excited when she pulled her apron out of the packaging.


She immediately put it on and wore it the entire time she was opening gifts.

We didn't stay for cake, (which was gorgeous, but NO I didn't take a picture again!), but got on the road, driving through lots and lots of wind farms before finding the highway again. I feel another post coming on...

Congrats Taylor!

Congratulations to the happy couple. I'm so glad you could go to the shower. What fun! Gorgeous apron - perfect gift. Don't you love it when the bride actually l-o-v-e-s what you give her? Such a special setting for the shower. ~Adrienne~

That looks like lots of fun!
Wish I could have been there, but I am excited about going to the wedding & just printed myself a map, so hopefully I won't get lost on the way.

She looks like a real sweetheart. Congratulations to the happy couple.
The apron was cute on her, too.

Paula,

Taylor is going to make a beautiful bride. The apron you made her is absolutely gorgeous. No wonder she wore it the entire time she opened the gifts.

Please stop by my Writing Nook and pick up a little something I've left for you there.

Blessings,
Mary
