If you have followed this blog, you might know that we sold our home in Greater Houston, in 2013, then moved to the acreage we've owned since our kids were young. We didn't have a house on the property, so we bought a nice, new and shiny RV, but NEVER expecting to live in it for THREE YEARS. Selecting the spot for constructing our new home wasn't an easy task.
The goal was live on the property for a minimum of one year so we could see how weather patterns and seasons affected the land itself. Since our acreage is in a heavily forested, rural region, we couldn't just refer to the opinions of others in the area or upon documented issues because there has been no one living here to record anything whatsoever.
I'll be sharing some of our progress as I catch up with some posts.
But, the best change over the past few months has been the wedding of our youngest daughter, Stefie. It's hard to believe she's 26 years old now. Finally, she married Brice...a young man we love and welcomed with open arms into our family.
Our oldest daughter, Heather, is in the maroon dress and our
daughter, Stefanie, is the Bride. Me and Sarge are flanking Stefie.
My dad is standing next to me and my in-laws are next to him.
This is our growing family. Our sons by law are handsome,
my two grand-babies (the smallest girl and boy in arms) while
my cute niece stepped into the shot!
But, we do have more pictures with the entire clan.
Stefie's wedding was a fairy tale event.
She was a truly beautiful bride. And she actually wore my veil...the veil that survived over 30 years in storage. I must say, it looked as if it were made just for her.
The family heirloom she wore for her
wedding...the veil. There is a 30 year gap
from the time I wore it on my wedding
day to marry her daddy, until the day
Stefie wore it for her own wedding.

Their wedding will always be remembered.
And I'm so proud of my daughters. They are sisters who are always there for each other.
The wedding has been a sacred event that started out 2017 with a beautiful BANG! The wedding was January 14th, and it turned out to be a BEAUTIFUL day in Texas with temperatures in the 70's. It couldn't have been more perfect.
I'll post more about the wedding and details with the decorating later.
I'm glad to be back. Happy posting everyone!
