"They're About To Say 'I Do' "

"Three little letters, two little words. 
It's the simplest part of the day, but there's nothing simple about the things that will remain unsaid. 
"I do" means, I do know that I could be hurt, but I am ready to be healed with you. 
It means I do want to try, even when the fear of failure holds me back and I do not know the future, but I am ready to be surprised along the way. 
And "I do" means I do want your love, 
and I do give you mine,
 and nothing we do will ever be the same, 
because you and I will be doing it all together." 

Here's to the past fifteen years of "I do" and to a lifetime more! I love you, David, and I always will!  xo

Scenes From Honk Jr.

(Group photo cred: Heather Collette)

All of their hard work over the last two weeks completely paid off in the form of two wonderful performances of Honk Jr! For those who were not able to attend, or who aren't familiar with this play, Honk Jr. is the story of the ugly duckling. For a first foray into summer theater this group of nineteen, and their incredibly talented director, didn't disappoint! It was a lot to learn in a little under two weeks time and they all rose to the challenge beautifully.

Oh, and for those wondering, Grace performed the role of the Mother Swan, with Emma performing as the turkey (who, thankfully, makes it through Thanksgiving)! 

Thank you, Michael, for an amazing two weeks for all of the girls! Grace and Emma are looking forward to the next summer production already! xo

Hudson MA Rocks!

 On our way back to the car tonight we stumbled upon this rock on this bench. 
I had heard about this sweet activity from my friend Jen who, along with her family, has been participating in the rock hunt taking place in their town in Virginia. I am so glad to see that one is happening here too! 
As soon as I finished explaining about the rocks to the girls they had already come up with a place to re-hide this one. 
Along  with a list of designs to paint the rocks they want to hide. too. There is sure to be lots of rock painting taking place over the next few days! 
We didn't get into the Pokemon crazy last summer, and we didn't get into the fidget spinner crazy of last spring, but this is definitely a trend we can't pass up! In the words of Grace this evening: "I love this game already! It will get people to actually look around their world!"  

I couldn't agree more, sweet girl! xo
