Good morning, folks.
Last weekend, I traveled to Pennsylvania to be with our family. While my poor Scott was here in the snow, I was enjoying a world coming alive to spring. The trees were in bloom, coated with soft white and pink blossoms. Spring's new growth stood out in bright greens, sharp against the still-bare trees.
Though I've not lived there for years, the sight of the Pennsylvania landscape always brings that inner sigh: home. Rolling fields sprouting silos that cut along the skyline, dividing the blue-purple mountains in the distance - there's a familiar comfort, a sense of belonging.
The occasion of my trip was the bridal shower of my sweet sister-in-law. There's such excitement and delight in celebrating an upcoming marriage. Since our wedding wasn't all that long ago, I feel like I can remember a lot of the emotions in the preparation and anticipation process. I also remember the feeling when the long wait is over, and you finally embark on the new adventure of marriage. It's a beautiful thing.
What are you thinking about this Friday?
