Bridal Shower

Bridal Shower

I spent a lovely afternoon with my friend Nancy.  Her son Matthew is getting married in a month and I attended a shower for his fiancée.



Nancy and I were eighth grade cheerleaders together along with several other of the Eating Cardinals. In fact, 6 of our 8 cheerleading squad member are still close friends – me, Nancy, Terri, Kim, Kristin, and Janet.  Just add Cindy, Gina, Joanna, and Nancy2 and you have all the Eating Cardinals.

I enjoyed catching up with Nancy and her mom.  Beautiful ladies and great friends of mine. Sorry about the backlighting.  The photos are a little dark.



The bride-to-be enjoyed opening gifts and was excited to announce that she and Matthew are very close to reaching their goal to go to Africa on a mission trip.  They opted for mission trip money instead of shower gifts.  A very generous gesture. A few people did sneak in some packages in addition to the donations for the trip.


Nancy’s daughter Lauren will be getting a sister-in-law soon!


Warmest wishes to Matthew and Autumn!

    Not many people would ask for money for a mission trip in lieu of gifts!
