Over the weekend, Adam and I went to Connecticut for a long-overdue visit with my parents. Have I mentioned how much I love these people? Or how supportive they are? Or how excited about my wedding my mom is?
I had casually mentioned to my mom that, for our wedding, I would like a hodgepodge collection of cream planters and vases (McCoy or otherwise) to hold flowers on the reception tables. I have a few (maybe 5) that I've picked up from Ebay, thrift stores, or antique shops for very little well before I was even engaged. So, what did my mom do with this casual comment?
She did this:
Since June, she's had the goal of collecting a variety of these cream planters. She's practically scouring all of New England. These selections range from Maine to Pennsylvania, with none more expensive than $20.
It's funny how, in just a gesture like this, my parents' love is so apparent. I am looking forward to the day when they are assembled with pride at my wedding reception.
