A fun afternoon and evening yesterday. Fr. Brian Bachmeier, my spiritual “brother,” came to visit in the afternoon because he was in town for a wedding. We were able to hang out and visit, and he stayed for dinner. Mom also stopped by for a little bit to get some goodies from the garden for Saturday’s bridal shower. Then Logan came for dinner and to stay the night because he had an appointment in the morning. Halfway through the night Shannon also called and visited with both me and Brian about some wedding planning, so the only one missing from the mix was Dad! It was a family-filled night with good cuisine, company, and conversation.
