Blessing Shower

So...the other big event this weekend was the Blessing Shower. I had never heard of such a thing so I was very curious to see just how it would all turn out. If you haven't been to one, it consists of meeting a lot of people, eating a really nice dinner, and then having everyone offer blessings to the couple that is getting married.

Our Blessing Shower was hosted at the home of Tanya McLemore (that's her with me and Sarah in the picture) and the place was absolutely amazing. It was decorated - both inside and out - like few things I have ever seen. The dinner was wonderful and it was a great opportunity for our family to meet so many of the Wolf's closest friends. Once the dinner was over, Sarah and I sat in the middle of the room while dozens of friends and family offered their advice, wisdom, and blessing over our relationship. It was a pretty intense night and one that meant so much to the two of us. It would be hard to explain the specifics of the evening without having a video or reading the actual blessings, but we are so thankful for the encouragement and all the effort that went into the entire event.

Here are a couple more pictures from the evening.

The Miscellaneous Tea

This past weekend Jeremiah, his family, and I traveled south for some pre-wedding festivities with friends and family in Montgomery. This was the first time our parents got to meet each other as well as the first little journey we've made together in our new motor home (see the pictures at the bottom), so for multiple reasons this trip was significant.

After a beautifully unforgettable dinner on Friday night and a wonderfully restful Saturday, we spent Sunday afternoon meeting and greeting some of Montgomery's kindest ladies who gathered with us to celebrate the approach of our big day. This precious event took place at the beautiful McElvy home where we enjoyed 3 hours of cake, punch, presents, and lots of smiling faces. Everyone loved getting to meet Jeremiah along with the rest of the wonderful Sizemores and another big hit was the Maverick which we brought along and parked next to the house for all the guests to see and explore ( and be jealous of :) ). We even had some of our favorite Birmingham friends make it down for the party which was so so special to us and made the afternoon that much more enjoyable and memorable. All in all, it was a sweet afternoon with sweet friends and after a gathering and a weekend like this it finally feels as though the wedding day countdown has officially begun... 26 days to go til we're on the road! - Sarah

We got one!

A Georgie Boy Maverick to be exact. We drove the beauty down from Chattanooga last weekend and it is now sitting quietly in a storage facility, trying to get mentally prepared for the long trip it is about to face.

We are taking it down to Montgomery this weekend and hope to post some pictures of it's pretty hilarious.
