Weekend before last was all about new beginnings. I attended a beautiful wedding of a young couple, watching them join their lives together. This weekend was about endings. My 88 year old grandfather passed away late Thursday night, and we layed him to rest yesterday. It's always hard to be reminded that with life, comes death.
Beverages - lemonade, sweet tea, and peach mimosas - yum!

It was all delicious!

My beautiful sister holding our Strawberry-Cream Puff Kabobs.
We added mint to our kabobs and had chocolate sauce for drizzling.
And last, but not least....a classic
Served with a dollop of whipped cream and fresh blueberries! Of course, I dumped some chocolate sauce on mine ;)
It was a lot of fun and putting this post together has made me seriously hungry!!
