Our older daughter was married on Saturday. There were seven months of planning and preparing for the big day. Like a blur, the day came and went. I find myself looking back on it, trying to remember bits and pieces of the night. I will be happy when the video and pictures are in so that I can get somewhat of a second look at the night and to see what was happening when we were “behind the scenes”. It turned out to be a lovely wedding. Mindy was a beautiful bride and Lacey was a beautiful Maid of Honor. It did have some sad moments without my husband being there , but I believe other than that the wedding was just what Mindy and Jed envisioned. I have gained a son-in-law through it all. He loves Mindy unconditionally and is going to make her a wonderful husband. I am really happy about that.
