Sweet Home Alabama

This past weekend we were in Alabama celebrating the marriage of William’s brother to his longtime sweetheart. It was a beautiful celebration that took place in the same church as his parents wedding and they had their receptions at the same place too, which was very sentimental to everyone. I find it incredible that William’s parents celebrated all three of their kids weddings in an 18 month period of time – December 2014, October 2015 and May 2016 – I am not sure they’ll know what to do with all of the free-time now!

I got in late Friday night and essentially said my hellos to my in-laws and went straight to bed – I was exhausted after traveling for well over 15 hours!

Saturday we slept in a bit before grabbing Chickfila and fruit to take to the bridal party getting ready at the country club. Then we relaxed and hung out around the house before showing up for photos at the country club and heading to the church to get everything ready. The wedding was beautiful and it was so much fun to celebrate the strong, sweet relationship between Nicole and Bryant. I was honored to help fill in at mass serving as a lecter reading the prayers of the faithful and as a Eucharistic minister. I love that they chose to do donuts instead of a cake at the reception and it was so nice to catch up with friends of the family and spend most of the time with Meaghan and Kevin.

Sunday was a lowkey, lazy day. We visited with our friends Meaghan & Kevin and saw the house they’re building, which should be done by the time we come back at the end of June. Everyone slept in, we ran some errands and we enjoyed chatting outside while watching Bear swim around in the pool outside. My father-in-law made a shrimp boil for supper and it was delicious!

Monday we visited with Mamaw and Gana before enjoying an early supper that my father-in-law fixed and then we were on our way to the airport. It was a long travel night again with a quick layover in Atlanta before our flight to Salt Lake.

I am already looking forward to our trip back at the end of June!
