The Bride














Three weeks until the wedding. Am I really the mother-of-the-bride? Wasn't I just one myself? Wasn't she just here beside me collecting buttons, picking flowers, walking around in dress-up shoes, building Legos, concocting in the kitchen?

My sweet little girl is all grown up.

Congratulations on your little girl growing into such a lovely young woman. Did you ever think it would go this fast?
My little girl is off to college.

Simply beautiful! Cannot wait for the wedding photos. Did you block her fiancee from seeing them here? You will be a gorgeous mother of the bride!

David was actually at the photo shoot. I suppose since they are getting married on Friday the 13th, we might as well defy ALL superstition and tradition, right? :)

Oh Julie. She's breathtaking. What a gorgeous young lady she has grown up to be! I got tears in my eyes at the very first picture, and then thinking about the years gone by...well, I'm totally bawling now! I'm so happy for her! (Rachel, if you're reading this, I'm so happy for you!!) XOXOX to you both!!

How elegant and beautiful Rachel looks. I love the portrait with the flute--it just says "classy". All of these are perfect.

Wow... nothing but Perfection Julie! AND Rachel. Someone told me just weeks before we married to savor the moments and memories leading to one of the most important and memorable days in your life. I didn't journal then... dang it... but still remember lots... so I'll pass that hint on.
