Mother of the Bride




Finally some good news...
my mom's biopsy came back good,
I'll spare the details,
just knowing she can be
treated with antibiotics and therapy
is a huge relief!  She can be moved 
to a hospital closer to home where
her friends and family can visit her.
~And~
Her grand-daughter's wedding trip can proceed...
We will travel to Florida for wedding vows 
while Grandma is on the road to recovery!

Our prayers have been answered.


Grandma will be right there on 
the beach with us in our thoughts...
just as she was there at our weddings

1973
Grandma in her purple gown and
metallic shoes. Giving my sister 
her motherly approval!



My sister with her mother, mother-in-law, and grand-mother.
Barb's bridal bouquet was the most gorgeous orchid attached
to a small white bible that her deceased grand-mother gave her.



Grandma helping me with
final primping before my wedding in 2003.


On Monday May 2nd
my sister and I will be fussing over
my niece's hair and crying over
how beautiful she looks!!
That's what mom's and aunts are for, right?

Her mom will hand her
 Great-Grandma's white bible 
with a beautiful orchid
and tell her how proud she is!


It will be a fun week for all of us in 
St. Augustine, Florida!
I can't wait!


See you on the beach...
I'll be the one with the camera,
