Indiana Trip

I am glad to be home in the warmth of Fl. Well it was 39 degrees this morning around 8:00 am.  But that is much warmer than -14 degrees.  I never new that Vehicle thermometers would show sub zero temperatures.  But i saw it with my own eyes and felt it with every fiber of my being.  Walking outside, my teeth would freeze over and my lungs felt like I took a bath in Viks vapo-rub.  It was COLD!  Thankfully, Jenn, one of the bridesmaids, welcomed us into her home and clothed my body with Northface gear and my feet with Uggs! I want a pair, by the way, even though i saw someone today walking out of First Watch wearing a pair and it looked really out of place.  They were so comfortable, like wearing house slippers all the time, and definitely kept my feet warm.  We took quite a few pictures, but forgot the camera for the acual wedding ceremony.  Stacy is a long-time college friend and the last one of us all to get married. It was a tremendous wedding.  She is marrying Joe, (see above picture of the two) a widow and father of four great kids, ages ranges from 14-5.  Stacy was the 5th grade teacher for the second daughter and mentored her during the time of her mother's cancer and passing.  The entire family is in the first picture, pouring their individual glasses of sand into the vase and thus signifying the combination of their unique personalities into one family.  It was so touching.  I wish them lasting joy for the rest of their days.
