Sometimes I am still amazed that I have a little girl of my very own. A little girl who wants to spend time with her mommy even if it means missing out on going up north. A little girl who gets excited about things like bridal showers, and holding babies, and school shopping, and snuggling up to watch princess movies.
That is exactly the kind of weekend Grace and I had.
The boys left to go up north on Friday morning. Shortly after they left Grace and I did a little shopping together for all the bridal showers and weddings we are going to in the next month and we even got all of her school shopping done too.
It was the warmest day we've had in a while (which is pretty sad because it was only about 82- come ON summer!) so we decided to go swimming. By the time we finally got to the swimming hole the temperature was 78, it was windy, and I was freezing in the water. Gracie was a much tougher chic than I and swam away.
Saturday we got gussied up, picked up my mom, and headed almost 2 hours away to the bridal shower for my cousin (Actually, she is my cousin's daughter- so what is that- my 2nd cousin? I don't know. My cousin) It was a beautiful warm, sunny day. Perfect for a bridal shower. The food was delicious, the company was sublime, and the games were so fun. It was a great day.
I hope so, my dear. I really and truly hope so.
