Just got back from the Hudson River valley where we gathered for my niece’s nuptials. What a great place to get married. The mountains in the background, the mighty Hudson nearby, it was so picturesque.
I think I just heard a huge sigh of relief from my sister, who is now finished with two of her daughters getting married back-to-back. We can now focus on Thanksgiving, just a few days away.
