Lucky for us, the sun and warmth arrived in St. Paul just in time for our visit last weekend. I didn’t wear a jacket for three whole days!
My future sisters-in-law hosted a wonderful bridal shower for me at a country club in St. Paul, complete with custom-designed candy bars and cookies.
We received so many special things! A blender, our place settings, serving platters, a cutting board, and a bundt pan from Mike’s mom with her handwritten poppyseed cake recipe so I can make Mike’s favorite dessert. (She also gave us a beautiful Waterford platter to display it on!)
They say you can’t choose your spouse’s family, but I may as well have, because I can’t ask for anything better.
My mom, sister and aunt also made the trip to Minnesota, which meant the world.
Another big moment of the weekend: meeting our godson, Daniel John Martin. Isn’t he so precious?!
