As many of you know, My oldest daughter is getting married this weekend, so I may be reblogging some of your posts for the next few days. Thank you all for your prayers during this time. I am excited and calm – way better than a month ago when I was complaining about having to see the ex!
I am such a proud mama and I will share pictures after Saturday. Let me just say – it is right out of a fairy-tale. The wedding ceremony is private at a park – only immediate family for that part, with a Cello player (thank you Stephanie E!) and the the Bride and Groom will travel by boat to the reception…with more surprises to come! Then the big party on the Lake with family and friends, and….more to come!
