Well, all, it's been two weeks since I posted last. I'm now 20 years old... and have 9 days before I leave for France!! Sounds ominous, doesn't it? ;) It's actually pretty exciting. And scary. The past fortnight has been spent getting ready both for the year in France and for Lindsey's wedding. I'm happy to report that we're making progress on both counts.
Adam and Christa got married on August 5. It was soooooo hot!! But I think it was a very pretty wedding nonetheless. They're on their honeymoon this week. Best wishes to the newlyweds!
Mom, Rose and I went to Chicago from August 7 to August 10 and came away with our visas for France. We really enjoyed our two day stay in Chicago and hope to visit again someday.
Linds came in from KC this past weekend. Rose and I hosted a bridal shower for her on the 12th. It turned out nicely, if you ask me. :) (Of course, there's always the chance that I'd be prejudiced. ;)) I hadn't seen Linds since before we went to Canada in June, so it was very good to see her again! She came in again for the feast of the Assumption and to look at the reception hall for the wedding. Dad and Joey are in Wyoming currently, so it was the girls at home this weekend. :)
...9 days and counting. I'll definitely keep y'all updated as to my adventures abroad! :D Wish me luck!!
Happy Feast Day to everyone!! I leave you with a few recent pictures...
