Prior to the wedding, the mother of the bride (that's ME!) pondered the question, "What will I feel like the day after the wedding? Will it be like the day after Christmas when you are a little sad?" Well, let me tell ya this...I was not sad at all, I felt bountiful happiness, the bliss of the moment was beautiful! It was a moment in time where I said to myself, "now HE can take good care of her" and I decided it was time to SWING...back to a place of peace and happiness in my own life. The wedding was done, the "I DO's" were said, and it was time for me to SWING!
The two had become one, and it was all said, and done...and I am content and thrilled to be called Mother-in-Law and I promise to do my best at it!
What's on my agenda now? I get to pack my bags and go on a vacation pretty soon! I get to go blog hopping again and visit you! I get to enjoy summer, sweet summer...ah, the bliss of the wedding behind me and beautiful bliss ahead of me....yep, yep!!!
I adore this picture of Kara and Shaun after the wedding. To me it is so soft, and kind and gentle and they are both radiating happiness. Highlights of the wedding ceremony were when the pastor read parts of their letters to each other. In pre-marital counseling they were to write a letter to the pastor on why they loved each other. It was very tender hearing Shaun's words..."I was so lonely and prayed so hard to find a women who loved Christ and wanted to be my wife"...and Kara's words, "I know beyond a shadow of a doubt, he loves me"...
Professional photo's won't be in for awhile...but this is as professional as we have right now...the candid moments of bliss is beautiful.
