Wedding gifts

The wedding is in less than two weeks! I’m so excited! We have been getting gifts in the mail like crazy so we are having a friend of ours watch the dog and check the mail and house sit for us while we are gone. It really has been crazy getting ready to go; cleaning, and laundry and packing and planning. Wow I’m ready for vacation to start!

Grant left this morning to go pick up Sammy in Oklahoma from her mom’s place. I can’t wait to see her. It’s been a month. Normally it will be two months between but because of the wedding and her mom having to change the last visit for a month late we get her two months in a row for visitation.

I love that some of the gifts we have gotten so far are for Sammy. That way she can be part of it too. We really wanted it to be more about a family coming together rather than a couple coming together. I know she is only two but she will still feel like she is part of the process.

One of the gifts we got is one of my favorites. It is a marriage prayer candle. I’ve seen then before and my parents have one. I was looking for one for my friend that got married last month but couldn’t like one that I liked. Then my mom’s best friend sent us one for our wedding and I love it! Its just one of those things you can have around the house to remind you that people are praying for your family and that people love you. It’s not something I will personally burn but it will be nice to have around as a reminder of those people praying for us and as a reminder of our love. I def recommend every couple get one for their wedding.
