Emerald Green

Lovely Day All Around

Today we had a Rigi hike, the sun shone, the flowers bloomed, the food satisfied, the wine sparkled, and the music enhanced a momentous occasion in the life of our family.

Along a path

Looking across the wildflowers to one of several area lakes

(It might be a hobbit hole.)

The local version of hobbits

With this ring they promised. (This ring has been a project of some of us for the last several months, designed and re-designed, and especially made for today.) She was surprised. We are delighted, and thankful.

All of Rigi Kaltbad was alive with folk music.

All the houses seemed to glow in flowers for today.

And the end was this view.

God be praised for answered prayers. May your days be also so good.


  1. Congratulations, Bachmann family! Congratulations, Joshua and Kat! Congratulations, Sarah, a happy mommy! Happy, busy (even more busy) days ahead. May God continue to bless you all with joy and love abounding.

  2. AH! How exciting! Congratulations to all. What a happy time!

  3. Josh had a good plan, and God made sure of the details. I'm so happy for him - and to have Kat as a sister-in-law. She's really cool.

  4. Hobbit hole, haha... love it. Congratulations all around! :)
