So much to be thankful for

Lately, I have been rather blown away at the amount of answered prayers there have been in my life. After hearing "wait" for Dad to get a good job for so many months, he recently got hired on by a local college. I'm thrilled that he is working for a place that values all his gifts and areas of expertise! The job has been a huge blessing so far.
We are finishing up the last minute plans for the wedding, which included finally sitting down and writing up a schedule to make sure everything is done in time. (finally, those nightmares regarding a half planned wedding can stop! lol) Right after we finished, I had several friends offer to help with whatever needs to be done the week leading up to the wedding. *whew* Now I don't have to try and figure how to decorate the church with just three pairs of hands or plan on a all nighter working on flowers.;) I feel incredibly blessed by the friends I have!
Is it wrong for me to be super excited about how the cake is looking to turn out? I think it is one of the things I am most excited about, since I have had a clear picture of how I want it to turn out for so long and yet didn't think it was possible. I want the cake to taste good, and then the look is second, so I didn't want to have to go with fondant as the design seemed to call for. Well, Poppy came up with this ingenious plan to do buttercream frosting on the actual cake, but then make the flowers out of fondant. So, it will both taste good and look the way I want.:D Because, it is just wrong for the baker to have a awful tasting wedding cake. lol.
We started the gluten free bakery and it has been amazing to see the doors open for that! God has richly blessed my family.


  1. Praise Him for answered prayers and many blessings! I can't wait to see this wonderful cake! =) You have every right to be super excited about it! ;)

    P.S. And have you been picking blackberries as of late? or are they are ripe where you live now?

  2. Praise Him, Praise Him for all the showers of blessings!! :)
    So glad that everything is working out so beautifully in God's timing. (Why do we ever doubt him!?!)
    I can't wait to see how beautiful your wedding will be and how the cake will look. I recently saw Jana and Chris' wedding cake and loved how cute and stylish it was! Her colors were beautiful (the reddish brown calla lilies!.
