Day 313: A Missing Delight from the Previous Post, Alex’s Parents, and a Surprise Wildflower Arrangement

When I wrote the last post I think I forgot to mention that Alex and I went shopping for the engagement party on Monday, June 28. It was delightfully enjoyable to spend the day just with Alex. I can’t believe our luck in having her as a future daughter-in-law. Unless everyone finds it too schmaltzy, I may use the term daughter-in-love, as my friend Mindie does.

Today, I had the delightful pleasure of hanging out with Alex’s parents, John and Lisa Guyton. We toured the proposed wedding venue and then took a walk on the C&O Canal at The Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park (which I have always referred to as Great Falls). After that we had an impromptu lunch of cheese and crackers because the weather turned nasty. (We didn’t know, but there was a tornado warning for our area at the time). John and Lisa are such fun. Again — I cannot believe our luck.

Finally, our egg couple went above and beyond with a flower arrangement that dazzled us all. Rick delivered it along with my egg and greens when Lisa and John were here. Our jaws dropped when we saw it. I was expecting something much smaller, and without a vase, but since I’d mentioned it was for the engagement party Valerie and Rick made it extra special.
