Mother of the Bride's Post Wedding Musings

Last weekend we celebrated our beautiful daughter's marriage to the man of her dreams.  
We've been working and planning for well over a year and today it's just a memory.
I am definitely going to share the event with you when our photos are ready but today, as I sit alone and reflect on the events of the  weekend, I want to share some reflections...

 *The day went way too fast...far faster than was hard to stop and take it all in.

*I didn't spend near as much time with everyone as I wish I could have.

*I can't remember how all the details turned out, I know everything was perfect, but I just can't remember. 
I'm so thankful we had a videographer AND a photographer to capture the memories.

*I have cried...a the days following the wedding.  Whether it's from unpacking, organizing gifts, cleaning a wedding dress that had its share of fun...or just amazing, random memories flooding my head and heart...
I have cried a lot.

*I miss our wedding planner! 

 *I will wish I could relive every minute.

*I wish we had gone on a little vacation just Bill and I after the wedding. I wouldn't have had to fall back into real life so fast.  It would have given me something to look forward to and been a good way to reflect on the amazing journey we shared with our daughter and our new son-in-law.

My mom happened to capture this moment, and no matter what my reflections are, when I see pure happiness on my child's lovely face I know that it was all perfect.

With Gratitude, Shand
