scenes from a sunday morning



My parents' golden anniversary is coming up in about a month. Before Christmas, February 7 seemed like a world away. Now it's just around the corner. I'm working like crazy today to make 200 invitations for the celebration we have planned. I thought you might like to see what my world looks like today.

Amy you are very talented. I wish I could help more than I have. I found the answer. If you need me to do anything let me know. Jennifer said I can get the cameras for the tables.
Love
Jessica

What a wonderful blessing to get to do what you are doing! I know that for me - planning my parents 50th Anniversary celebration was one of my best memories & it was the best fun!. . . a lot of work - yes, but 50 years of love is worth it! Have fun!

What a good daughter! I had to laugh tho about how Christmas really does a # on MY mental calendar also. Today I'm feeling...you mean February is How Close? We have a big trip then and I coulda/shoulda done some research by now. Deep breaths dear sister.

Oh Amy!
These are fabulous!
They would be something that my own mom and dad would appreciate...but they are gone now. They did not make it to the fiftieth together...but they are together now...in heaven.
Best place to be.
Amen?
Hope all the planning goes just perfectly.
You are already off to a great start!
Can't wait to see more photos of the celebration.
Blessings on you this day.

They're stunning. The font.. the gold. Surely a memory they'll treasure. Happy New Year sweet friend!

These are just lovely, Amy. Is that calligraphy or a font? If it's calligraphy, did you do it? It's really beautiful. I love the gilt edge detail on the pictures too.
