I sincerely "hope" you all have a lovely weekend... as you end it visiting Hope Valley!

Just for fun, I was wondering what gift I would give the happy couple in that particular time period, if I had the opportunity. I'm thinking a beautiful wedding ring quilt would be nice, as it would be a reminder of their wedding day and the vows they took to one another; it would also keep them warm on those cold winter days, and it would hopefully be a treasured keepsake they could pass on to future generations.

You can sign up on Hallmark Channel's web-site and let them know you will be watching/attending Jack and Elizabeth's wedding! Additionally, you can share how many guests will be attending, your preference on the meal served (Chicken Pot Pie, Shepherd's Pie, or Chicken Fried Steak), and you can share what kind of music you would like to hear.

I join all the Hearties in looking forward to this wonderful wedding event, as I will most definitely be watching, along with my family, and recording Sunday night's very special episode of "When Calls the Heart!" My love and admiration for Elizabeth and Jack has grown over the years; I'm so happy to see them finally reach this very special day, even if there are a few obstacles in the way.

From the first time I picked up Janette Oke's When Calls the Heart book series, I have been mesmerized by these stories and these strong characters. I cannot tell you how thrilled I was when that first pilot movie came to the Hallmark Channel and I could finally see Elizabeth Thatcher come to life on the screen. The stories have evolved from those frontier-era hard days in Coal Valley, to a more robust, growing, inspiring town of Hope Valley...but no matter the time or place, it's the people there we have all grown to love, those that will be celebrating the wedding of their dear friends, Elizabeth Thatcher and Jack Thornton, such as Rosemary and Lee Coulter (I just adore them!), Abigail Stanton, Pastor Frank Hogan, Cody, Clara, Jesse, Bill Avery, Carson Shepherd, Faith Carter, Opal, Philip, Anna, Robert, Timmy, Dottie Ramsey, William Thatcher, Julie Thatcher, Tom Thornton, Ned Yost, Katie, Mike Hickam, and so many more. Even Henry Gowen.

Will you be watching the wedding episode Sunday night?

Episode 1 of 3, via BBC:

Christmas, 1861. The March sisters - Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy - and their mother Marmee prepare for Christmas without presents and without their father, a Union army chaplain away at war. Learning to appreciate the smaller things in life, the sisters strike up a friendship with their charming new neighbour Laurie and his tutor John Brooke.

After the holiday, Meg and Jo return to work in order to provide for the family. In the new year, Amy and Jo clash over an invitation to the theatre and a rash act of revenge, but a life-threatening event encourages them to put their differences aside.

During the summer Beth struggles to overcome social anxiety and Meg grows closer to John. As autumn of 1862 sets in, the family receives the terrible news that Mr March has been taken ill in an army hospital in Washington DC. The girls anxiously await news of their father's fate as Marmee, accompanied by John, rushes to his side.

Episode 2 of 3, via BBC:

As Marmee waits by her husband's sickbed in the army hospital, the March sisters must learn to cope without their parents. Meg is shocked and embarrassed to hear rumours circulating in society that Marmee is trying to marry her off to Laurie, and after an incident at Amy's school, Jo must take charge whilst trying to balance her family responsibilities and her writing. Beth helps a poor German immigrant family suffering from scarlet fever, but her life is thrown into danger as she also falls ill, and Amy is sent away to take over as Aunt March's companion. One evening, Laurie tries to share his feelings with a distraught Jo, but she rebuffs his advances.

On Marmee's return, relief sweeps over the family as they prepare for Christmas. Jo also receives promising news regarding her writing. Meanwhile, John Brooke prepares to join the army and declares his love to the unsuspecting Meg. Aunt March's sharp disapproval puts Meg's feelings into perspective and she accepts his proposal of marriage. The family holds a joyous ceremony upon John's return, but at the wedding Jo grows anxious when she notices that Beth is still weak and Laurie still holds out hope for their future as a couple.

Episode 3 of 3, via BBC:

A year has passed and the March family welcomes Meg's twins, yet Marmee and Jo are anxious as Beth's health and spirits flag. Aunt Carrol arrives with the opportunity for Jo to accompany her daughter on a tour of Europe, but dismayed by Jo's wild spirit, chooses the more refined Amy as a companion.

Devastated, Jo flees to New York to become a governess and pursue her writing career. There she meets the kind-hearted Professor Bhaer, who challenges her to write more honestly. Upon hearing that Beth is still in decline, and believing she knows the cause, Jo returns to treat her to a seaside holiday. Before they leave, Laurie declares his love for Jo, and after another rejection is taken to Europe by his grandfather to cure his heartbreak.

Back home, the March family gathers as they are faced with devastating news. With new responsibilities, Jo is consumed by grief and frustration, only alleviated through writing. She pens a heartfelt poem, which is publicly well-received and reaches Bhaer in New York. In Europe, Laurie and Amy reunite and grow close, their friendship blossoming into love. They return home to greet the March's with unexpected news. Touched by Jo's poem, Bhaer makes a surprise visit to the March house.
