Welcome dinner with mom and dad at Quarter Bistro. Ate lots of fried appetizers. Zucchini, oysters, lentil soup, Caesar salad. We all shared. It was lovely.
Snack before bed in my amazing room my mom decorated for the bride. Mixed nuts and a caffeine free diet mountain dew (only in the Midwest...love it). Reading Barbara Kingsolver's Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. Inspiring and overwhelming.
Aunt Lolly came early to help mom with the party prep. She picked these flowers on a walk and placed them above the sink to cheer us as we got the food ready. Everything was in bloom and it really was breathtaking.
