Annie and John-Mark

What a crazy March!

Our oldest daughter, Annie, got married to John-Mark on March 14th.  We have prayed for John-Mark and this relationship since Annie was born.  We are so thankful for John-Mark and his family!

Who knew (only God knew) that when these two picked their wedding date back in October... for March 14... that they would just on the edge of the pandemic and quarantining.

We got to Waco on Wednesday, March 10th and started enjoying our wedding bubble.   We enjoyed walking through Baylor and just hanging out a few days with Annie and John-Mark.

Annie and John-Mark both went to Baylor.  We just thought Waco was the perfect place for the wedding.  It is central - with me in Omaha and Annie in DC and John-Mark in DC and his family in San Antonio - Waco is the perfect spot!  I am very thankful to a dear friend (sister to my roommate at Baylor) who lives in Waco and was my "go-to" person and and the "save-the-day"person for the wedding and reception.  Thank you Gretchen!

I just want to share a few snapshots taken over the few days.  Most are from iphones by me or friends (mostly dear friend Kathy) and just a few from our awesome photographer., Catherine Coons. Thanks for letting me share!  It is fun to share something so joyful during this crazy time.

Just a little time in Waco - enjoying lunch and shakes and even a walk around Baylor before all of the festivities begin.

           Friends from Texas did a "traveling bridal brunch" and brought it to the Harp Cottage where we were doing hair and makeup.  It was perfect!
