Showers of Blessing!

We had the BEST day yesterday at Ashlyns first Bridal Shower. It was hosted by her wonderful aunt DeDe and she was surrounded by family and friends who love her so much and share in all the joy of her and Travis.When you meet her family you realize how these 4 Donatelli sisters became so remarkable. What a incredible loving family and I have never felt so welcomed.During the shower the boys played golf. Travis, Steve, Ashlyns dad Steve and her grandpa Paul.After the shower we all met up for a fun family dinner.Ashlyn's mom Sara made homemade lasagna and we had yummy pies that Grammie made.The food, fun and fellowship was PERFECT!! Travis has a wonderful new family and we feel like we do too! What a legacy of faith they have.Ashlyn's grandparents shared their recipe for a happy marriage that has lasted 52 years.They are so precious and there was not a dry eye at the table. I am overwhelmed with gratitude!!After dinner we went out to visit the site of the wedding.It is so special and I know it will be the most magical day ! With a thankful heart....

I thought about you all day on Saturday knowing you were having a wonderful time at Ashlyn's shower. The pictures are lovely. I'm trying to figure out how to get them to STOP! so I can look at every detail but they just keep clicking along, so I've looked at them at least 100 times and every detail is perfect! Ashlyn is a beautiful girl and so is everyone else I can see, what a happy day for all! The FUN is just beginning.....
