Treasuring Each Moment of My Daughter's Wedding

I love how each of our daughter’s weddings have reflected their personalities.  So even though, this was our 3rd wedding in as many years, Nic and Audrianna’s wedding reflected their artsy,  creative and fun tastes. Audrianna had a vision for their wedding and she did an amazing job of planning and executing a vintage theme for the day.  She asked Alison, a friend and mentor of hers (and the writer of Stuff and Nonsense Blog) to help coordinate the reception and as you…

So Blessed …

The last several months has been a very recognizable and blessed time in my life and for our family – definitely providing reminders of how faithful God is.  A trip to the Mexican Riviera, time with my daughter as we got ready for her wedding, sweet time with our  family and then a most memorable, beautiful wedding day for Nic & Audrianna.  How God continues to show His love to me… During the reception, I stood back and looked at the goodness…

She said Yes and They're engaged – it is time for another wedding…

Monday evening, our youngest daughter said yes to marrying her long time boyfriend Nic.  It has been pure pleasure to be part of Nic and Audrianna’s  relationship over the years (they have been dating for 4 1/2 years).  They are a fun couple, who are equally talented and most importantly they love the Lord and are looking forward to serving Him through ministry.  For the third time in the last several years, Bill and I are thanking God for bringing these two together.  As I…

Reflections of my Daughter's Wedding #3

After a wedding come the reception – the party time to celebrate.  When followers of Christ marry, there is much to celebrate.  This couple has established a home of faith that will represent God’s love and grace.  Jason & Alycia’s reception was held at a community park under a perfect picnic shelter – it was perfect just like the weather.  Alycia’s best friend from high school, Tina, did an outstanding job of decorating the large, outdoor space to make it…

Reflections of my daughter's wedding #2

Planning Alycia’s wedding celebration began as soon as the engagement ring was placed on her finger.  A short 6 months after our middle daughter, Laryssa’s wedding, we began the wedding planning process again.  As every parent knows each child is different from one another, the same is true when they begin to plan their wedding.  Alycia’s desire was to have a comfortable, more causal wedding ~ one where people would feel relaxed.  Her wedding week and day was exactly as…

Reflections of my daughter's wedding

The last of our family has left and most of the wedding items  in our home has been cleaned, delivered or eaten.  It is over and to quote the line from the Father of the Bride, “It is funny how empty a house can get, isn’t it?” The weekend was beyond words that I can use to describe.  We all felt the Lord’s amazing presence all week, but especially on the day of Jason & Alycia’s wedding.  The weather was so prefect…

Just 4 Days Away

The excitement is here, our home is filling with people we love, there are piles of wedding items in our dining room and budding mums on our front porch.  There is going to be a wedding in our family in 4 days. Once again I am reminded at how fast the seasons of life pass by – this morning I am sitting on our couch with my married daughter watching my grandson kick away on the floor.  Just last year,…

Since marriage is on my mind

As we prepare for Jason and Alycia’s wedding, here is a favorite blog post to encourage you in your marriage (or soon to be wedding).  One of the comments that was left on the original  post was from the upcoming bride, my daughter Alycia – her words are special to read now… “So-I saw commercial today with the typical beautiful couple talking about how they were SO compatible with each other. This made me think about you and your blog and…
