Showering Chelsea with L-O-V-E

Last weekend Chelsea was 

with love
by her family and friends.

Thank you to Faith and Carter 
for throwing Chelsea a beautiful bridal shower 
making it a day 
we won't ever forget.


Being the blogger that I am,
I am what I am
 I couldn't help but write a little "verse"
and it went like this:

"Our darling Chelsea went south to Bama
ten fleeting years ago.
Bid farewell to her friends and fam 
across the Mason Dixon, she did go.

Off to school with a smile
our sweet Chelsea ventured,
not knowing what the south would bring
in terms of adventure.

A big move for a little girl
who didn't go on sleep-overs,
not to a friend's house
or even to her neighbors.

I remember that day we said goodbye
as she stood holding her wooden clothes rack.

Her Dad and I turned emotional dishrags
as she turned and we watched her back.

Chelsea made many great friends,
many are bridesmaids here (at the shower) today.
As college coeds they have their stories,
I would venture to say.

They lived in the "Mansion",
with a pool in the sun.

They cheered at Bama football games,
"Roll Tide, Beat Auburn."

In her junior year Chelsea met Austin
a handsome ball player
with the greenest of eyes and
the tallest of stature.

One day Chelsea asked Austin
to her sorority dance.
The rest they say is history,
the beginning of their romance.

After college Austin pitched for the Phillies
which kept them many miles apart.
Chelsea always looked forward to the offseason
when it came to matters of the heart.

Last November her "Stone" gave her a rock,
happy tears ensued thereafter
as they began making plans for a life together
72 days and counting...
