Among the other things I did last week (mostly, I felt, doctoring), I hosted a small shower for a good friend. Renee and her fiance have been together for 57 years and finally decided to make it official! (yes, that is fifty-seven!) We had a blast!
We met at a local restaurant's small private room. Here's most of the group sitting around chatting before dinner.
We added our wishes to a "tree" for the couple. I made small favors and Renee made us all a jar of her famous French Dressing.
Here's the Bride-to-Be in her "official" Bride hat. We all talked about how we met Renee (and how long we've known each other!) and about how she and Mel met in college and how the wedding came about, her dress and her ring. Girl stuff. The ceremony will be in a week. I'm sure it will be lovely.
Best wishes to the Happy Couple!
