We had the inspiration from my fiancés grandmother and mothers favorite flowers. So we knew we wanted to try for white roses and, if possible, blue carnations. I saw these at Wal-Mart once and wished I could've found them in fake flowers.
I've also been working on the chocolates needed and trying my best to get them just right.
In the midst of everything, I took Memorial Day to enjoy my family. It is so easy to get caught up in the craziness of planning and details. Especially when you are feeling like it is more of a chore than a joy. I took a step back to connect with my kiddos.
We talked about what Memorial Day is for. Why we celebrate it. My darling husband-to-be even grilled dinner.
We topped off the night with s'mores!
