On a happier note, I was blessed to go to a true Florida wedding on Saturday. The daughter of my best teacher buddy married her long time sweetheart along the banks of the beautiful Steinhatchee River.
I've known this bride since she was a little girl in elementary school. Her Mom has taught at the same school with me since I started teaching , and her beautiful, smart daughter works with us as a science teacher.
It was a beautiful setting and a very happy event. One nice thing about a drought is it makes outdoor weddings in Florida spectacular. There's no chance of getting rained out, no humidity, and no mosquitoes.
This is just the top of the multi-level wedding cake. I told you this was a real Florida wedding. All of those finally detailed seashells and starfish are edible creations by the cake artist. You might want to click on that picture just to see how lifelike they are.
As a marine science instructor, I give the cake artist an A+ for attention to detail.
The groom's cake was an airboat since that is one of his favorite things to do. It was complete with cattails and alligators.
Very Pure Florida, doncha' think?
