I have needed much time to regroup. Forgive me for the silence. This event pushed me way past my limits. The Monday after the wedding I broke out in shingles and once that had healed I contracted a horrendous strep throat. It took me almost a month to feel good, but I was still tending to my daily duties. Mothers keep rolling don't they? I also wanted to wait until I had all the professional pictures so I could share how beautiful it was.
The day before the wedding I hosted a brunch for the bridesmaids. We enjoyed this event at the same location the older daughters had used. This club in town does a beautiful job and we have made it a tradition. The only difference was this time they offered us the balcony. Why is this so special? If you know anything about golf ( which I do because my husband plays every week) this balcony overlooks prime space during the Colonial Golf Tournament. It is a beautiful site. My daughter had the idea to use all of the family china for the brunch. I thought it was fabulous. We had both other grandmother's, mine, and her two married sisters plus a collection of Desert Rose I have collected for years. It was touching to see all those pieces together. Those are all my daughters in the pictures. So wonderful to have them all together.
The day of the wedding was busy, but the weather was perfect. I'm just going to let you browse the pictures and enjoy. I'll comeback to look at comments for any questions. It's going to take me some time to get back in the groove. I'm not sure how much time I want to invest right now. This last year really did take the wind out of me, so be patient. If you are on Instagram, that's a good place to follow.
