As I mentioned in my Fab Finds post two weeks ago, there wasn't a Fab Finds post last week due to our son's wedding. Well, the wedding day arrived and it was wonderful! And it was awesome to spend time with family and friends. We love our new daughter-in-law and are so happy she's part of our family now. I'll be sharing photos from the wedding here on my blog in the near future.
