My son married his love last Saturday on the beach at Ocean Springs, Mississippi. Isn't Sandy's hair pretty? She had a hairstylist and makeup artist come to the beachhouse to prep her for the wedding. Ooh la la!
We had a long road trip with them and their two year old that included lots of adventure and fun. Because we were traveling with a toddler we divided the road trip each way into two 5-6 hour segments, stopping for the night just past Birmingham, Alabama each way. We made one side trip into New Orleans, and two forays into Biloxi just down the road, but otherwise mainly enjoyed the lovely beach house we had rented for the week.
My calligraphy was limited to the save the date envelopes and the invitation envelopes. I helped assemble the centerpieces and the arch, and I helped with some of the pre-planning, but mostly I tried to keep the sand swept from the floors, washed a lot of dishes and cleaned a dishwasher load full of hot water from the floor when it unexpectedly gave out on us, cooked a couple of meals (one a triumph, one a disaster), babysat and played with my grandson and his cousins.
I saw more seabirds on this trip than I have ever seen. This was a daily sight from our deck.
I captured both a very pink sunrise and a pink sunset. I loved watching both.
