Will Spring ever arrive?

Hi. I’m still here. I bet you didn’t even know I was gone for a bit. I’ve been out of town for a week helping my daughter with a few things and getting in a nice visit with her and her husband.

I ended up using a company that was partnered with our reception site, but I wish that I had taken the time to look for a better option. If I had known about Basic Invite at that time, I totally would have used them!
