At the moment Johan, Ava and I are on the way back from dropping my mom off at the airport. She is heading home to the US for two months. Johan and I are so jealous. Would love to be boarding a plane right now, destination Charlotte.
Yep, writing this post on my brand new iPad! Love it. I should say Johan's iPad as he uses it way more than I do. We definitely need two.
My big work event is FINALLY over and we can finally get our life back to normal. (I met AL GORE!) However, it has been so great having my mom and grandma at my house this week. But now, back to normal.
This weekend we were supposed to have family photos taken, the weather obviously had different plans. If I tell my sister it's warm in Pretoria, by the time she gets here, it will be raining or freezing cold. Shame.
Thankfully the sun came out and today was beautiful for Ava's baptism. She was such a doll in church. When the preacher placed the water on her forehead, she gave the biggest smile of her life. It was almost like she knew what was happening. My heart swelled up. There aren't words to explain how happy and proud I was of my little family today. And that my grandmother could be there to witness Ava's baptism, made it even more special.
For my wedding dress, I used my mom's wedding dress and had it updated a bit. With the left over fabric, the dress maker made a baptism dress. Della Mae wore it first and now, Ava. My mom bought a blanket and stitched each of the girls who used the dress name onto the blanket, so we have now created our own heirloom. Very special.
This week has been hectic to say the least. Monday I started an events management course online. Not sure why I thought because it was online it would be easy. Ha. Wednesday was the event. Thursday Amanda and the girls arrived. Friday Ruben arrived! Saturday is rained out our plans. Today the baptism... Like Johan says, I need a weekend.
