A+B = Guthrie

What a wonderful,perfect weekend it was for my niece Amanda to marry her prince of a man Boyd. 

The weekend started with a little Fiesta!

Two families coming together and sharing stories, laughs and yes a few happy tears….

Its was the perfect way to start off the weekend – casual and lots of laughs…..

Saturday Morning came and not a cloud in the sky – I thanked our guardian angels and got to setting up for the friends and family brunch. Gathering all Amanda's girl friends and Family together to celebrate her big Day. Brenda and I  had such fun honoring our niece.




The evening came with a few clouds in the sky but cool breezes, Happy hearts and LOTS of smiles…..


Amanda had such fun planning her wedding – she said she didn’t know she wanted a  wedding till she found pinterest and went to town planning the prettiest vintage-outdoor wedding I have ever seen. She is very creative – she got the gene- hehe. Let me show you the setting – so serene and lovely- set in the mesquite trees of West Texas at the famous Perini Ranch.














It was one of the funniest  weddings I have been to- Thanks Amanda and Boyd for sharing your special day with all of us!

Tomorrow I will share some family Pictures and the cutest little attendants pictures EVER!!!

I just LOVE  weddings!

Easter comes…..

I have always loved Easter – almost as much as Christmas. I believe in Easter and the reason we celebrate it – I am living proof that Jesus died on the cross because he loved me – ME. I love the fact that Easter reminds us of our new life in Christ. My Lord brought new life to me-


This Easter God has given me such a literal picture of  new life. On Friday – Good Friday – I become the owner of the Bernina Sewing Center – it will be a good Friday ! And just like the Easter story of a new beginning it will be my new beginning. I did not know the dates of Easter this year when I scheduled the take over day with Bernina – but I believe God knew – he knew I liked signs – I like to be reminded that he watches over my every move! One morning last week I woke up at 3:00 – Did you know God always wakes me up at that hour? I guess cause nothing else has my attention. I started thinking about the new store and the old stores and all of a sudden – I remembered something pretty amazing! 30 years ago this month I opened Country  Pleasures Quilt Shop! How could that possibly be planned? I had not even thought of that! God sure likes to give me UH Huh moments! I wondered what all that was in the middle of my life but I guess it was the journey to this time of new beginnings. I am so overwhelmed at Gods love for me and the life he is building for me here on earth. This will definitely be a Easter season I remember all my life. This week God will be by my side scattering stars of hope, new life and new beginnings all around me and for that I serve a- RISEN SAVIOR!97531148150359622_aUwXbBxI_b
