A Wedding Anniversary

Today is my wedding anniversary.  Twenty-nine years ago today, Mr. Forest Manor and I got married at our local Methodist church, where we also held the reception.

The French Huguenot Church in Charleston

Today I'm sharing a bit about the church we visited while in Charleston a few weeks ago.  We didn't attend the service there, but we were walking by snapping some photos, and I noticed the front doors were open.  We walked around to the steps and were met by two church members who greeted us and invited us to go into the church.  They said we were welcome to look around and also welcome to take pictures.

Historic Boone Hall Plantation

Hi folks!  I hope everyone had a nice Mother's Day yesterday; I know I sure did.  We are so blessed to still have both of our moms with us, and I'm so thankful to be a mom myself.  :)

We just got home Friday evening from four days spent in Charleston, South Carolina.  What an amazing city -- full of elegance, grace, mystique, hospitality, history, and good food.  If you've never been, I encourage you to put that on your list of places to see.

While we were there, we made a side trip to Mt. Pleasant, where we toured Boone Hall Plantation.  I believe I went there as a child with my parents and sister, but I really didn't remember it at all.  We spent the afternoon there, and it was a fascinating visit.

A Busy Weekend

Hi everyone!  There are lots of things happening this weekend -- college graduations, the Kentucky Derby, and Mother's Day.  If you have a new graduate in your family, or are a new graduate yourself, congratulations to you!!  Earning a college degree is an accomplishment to be proud of.  :)

Last, but certainly not least, I wish all my blog friends and readers a Very Happy Mother's Day.  May your day be special in every way!




Blessings,

Denise

Take Time to Smell the Roses

Today it has been misting rain here, and our rose bush is covered with pink roses.  Not to be dramatic, but it seems as if it burst into bloom overnight.  We cut some of the blooms (and a few buds) to put in the house because we're sort of expecting more rain, and the rain tends to beat up the delicate petals on the roses.
