An Open House

Marie had made friends with a widow in our ward.  We invited her over to our home and Marie was constantly drawing her pictures and writing her notes.

A wonderful thing happened this summer.  She got married.  They didn't want a big reception.  But I talked them in to an open house if we put a note on the invitation that said, "No gifts, please."

It was a great evening filled with family, friends, food, and fun.    I may have been the organizer.  But I was once again reminded of the amazing and dependable friends I am surrounded by.  The Fuhrmans let us use their back yard.  Amy Packer took pictures.
Jenn Gold let me borrow decorations.
 And countless people brought desserts.
