Click to embiggen. This is where I worked today; the Pinehurst Hotel, scene of the 2008 Jim Valvano Golf Classic. Here are two photos of flowers we did for the Friday night Gala.
Mel did this buffet centerpiece.
A friend and I have been church hopping for the last several weeks, trying to find one that we think is a good fit for us. This past Sunday, we went to a nearby United Methodist Church, and she found a few friends and so did I. The Pastor for our service was a bride for whom I did wedding flowers years ago, and her husband is someone I have known since he was 14 (he's now about 40). The last I knew of them, they were at another church but I learned they moved to this one about 4 years ago. This guy was in my son's wedding, but they have lost touch with each other over the years. It was a nice surprise to see both.
His wife was a Youth Pastor the last I knew, so I was surprised to see/hear her preach a sermon to adults, and do a darn good job of it. She used humor, too, which is always a plus for me. I don't know if we'll join this one, but we are going to go back next week and see what happens.
*********My spell-checker almost had a conniption fit when I sent an email with the words "Tres Vaqueros" and "chimichangas" in it. That's my favorite Mexican restaurant and my favorite thing to eat. Yours, too, huh Alice? Too bad you aren't here to share it with me.
Please Note: I am working hard tomorrow (as well as today and yesterday) and I am not able to visit or comment as much as I'd like. Catch you later!
