Ruth, Joelle and Jaelene had arrived the day before with a bootful of goodies: cupcakes still to be iced, gifts and party decorations. By noon Saturday we had just made it! And what better opportunity to wear the girls' special flowergirl dresses once again.
The banner was up and the table set. Time for the guests to arrive on foot. Cars had been parked in Marais Street to make allay any suspicions Catherine may have had. The plan to get her to the party unsuspecting? That was Ryan's task.
Ruth made the welcoming speech. "Catherine may be quiet and reserved but she has the most amazing circle of friends! Thank you all for being here today. Family, collegues at work and friends from church, university and school days..."
See that special glow?
