I arrived in the USA tired, jetlagged and with a cold but I had to be ready to help with the wedding preparations. That’s why I was there early! After spending the morning at the hair salon getting some rest and relaxation, I drove to pick up my cousin Crystal to go to a seamstress, try on my bridesmaid dress and pay for alterations. All that I needed done was to have the dress hemmed slightly so that I could wear flats with it and have removable straps added. What a relief!
After the appointment, Crystal and I decided to go to Hick’s Orchard to buy some apples, cider and apple cider donuts. YUM!!! All in all it was a great afternoon driving the countryside of Washington County, New York and enjoying the beginnings of the fall foliage.
I arrived home to find out that my mother and I were driving 5 hours to western New York that evening to help "raise the tent" and decorate for the rehearsal dinner and reception the next day. So, I threw some things in a bag and off we were... on the road again.
We helped with the decorating, celebrated birthdays and had a great time getting ready for the weekend's events.
