18.52 motivational monday

The glory is not in never failing, but in rising every time you fail.
-Chinese Proverb
I've not shared these here before so am taking the liberty of using older
photos this week.
It's been one of those weeks.
Alyx wanted wedding favors at her wedding in February and requested strawberry jam.
Mom said sure thing and got right on that.
I didn't realize that adding a bit of butter and skimming the stuff off the top was necessary
until after the first batch was done.
We added that to our own kitchen larder and quickly ingested it.
The rest ....

We added cute little doilies and labels ..

along with our invitation to take a treat as our thanks for guests
sharing their day with the bride and groom.

It is fun having girls that have all kinds of creative ideas.
On to Marcy for this month's hop around the blogs!

    1. It was super fun! The difference between having a wedding with 400 guests and one with about 75. You get to experience a variety of fun things with each!
