Surely I have mentioned that my oldest granddaughter is getting married this summer.
And just so you will know, the dress saga is still ongoing.
But, that's not the reason for today's post.
This weekend, I traveled to Dallas for Chandler's first bridal shower in the home of one of her best friends and bridesmaid, Caroline. Invited guests were mostly friends and family of the groom.
As I looked at my beautiful, intelligent and loving granddaughter, I couldn't help remembering what she was like only yesterday.
Now, she will be graduating from A&M and getting married a couple weeks later.
But, this weekend we were only thinking about having fun, meeting new people, and celebrating this precious couple.

Is it not evident that this girl had a wonderful time?
I got the impression, this was a special gift specifically for Brad.
She loved my gift.
Her Harbison Grandmother gave something she was very excited about.
She had a ball and was so grateful for it all.
All they need now is a place to put it all.
Isn't it strange how our mind works sometime? You look at something and yet in your minds eye you actually see something else?
This happened for me when I looked at this picture....
I actually saw this one.
Where have the years gone?
After the shower, I had an opportunity to give them a couple paintings I did for them.
This was a very crude abstract interpretation of their engagement announcement picture, but they seemed to like it.
Perhaps one of the most meaningful gifts of the day was one given to them by my sister, Gingie. It is a tray that was given to our mother as a wedding gift back in 1943.
My sisters and I have treasured it all these years, and now it is time to pass it on.
I think Larla would definitely approve.
So, congratulations to you Chandler, and I can't wait to celebrate you and Brad again next month.
