Let's Play Catch Up



This week let's get caught up with each other, shall we?

In the spring Marin was asked to be the flower girl in our Niece's wedding... I was , I mean, Marin was so excited to be in this wedding!

The wedding was in June and was going to be at a vineyard on Long Island...

We ordered the dress.....

We practiced with hairstyles.....

Of course I knit a sweater for her to wear in case it was cold....

Pattern is by me.... but will never be written. It was a pain, but look at how beautifully it matched! The lace is called vine lace (Barbara Walker first book, I think) because that kind of stuff really blows my dress up, if you know what I mean.













She looked so beautiful.... I cried really hard when she walked down the aisle, really it was a bit embarrassing.... she is a vision....



Dress.... $100.00
Hand knit sweater..... blood, sweat, and tears
Hairstyle........ 1 hour to roll, overnight to set and 45 min to style....(all by me)








Having pictures like these for the rest of my life....... priceless.

Beautiful, Kimberly! Enjoy the moment! My youngest was married in September (the first of my 3 children to marry). I had the honor of walking her down the aisle since my husband died 10 years ago. It was hard to keep it together! Now the are moving away due to her husbands job. A heart full of joy but breaking as I know we will not see each other much.

So, like I said, breathe in every moment of brightness that your children offer, store it up for the future when life will take them on their own paths.

You should be so proud! You have a lovely family!

Wow! She is SO BEAUTIFUL! (Of course, look at her gorgeous Mama). The sweater is perfect and so adorable. She deserves a one-of-a-kind sweater. Thanks for sharing.
