Sigh - more time passed/ Happy News

 I'm getting through the days but some are more difficult than others. 

Last weekend I managed not to cry sad tears (it was a struggle but I did it). My wonderful daughter got married!!! It's been planned for a while. I just haven't wrote about it as I've just been...well, struggling. I put my happy face on, was as social as I could be (I'm an introvert at heart) and had a good time. I thought about Mum a lot. I would have loved to chat with her before the wedding and shared photos after. 

The wedding took place in Minnesota. The North Shore. Added time to the usual daughter drive. It took us about 12 hours! A looonnnggg drive! We survived it. The wedding was on Sunday. We drove up Friday, had Saturday to spend with daughter, had the wedding Sunday and drove back on Monday.  The wedding was lovely.  Her husband is a great guy and I'm really pleased for them . 

I did not take wedding photos. My daughter wanted me to enjoy the day. I did take photos of her getting ready and I took a few later on in the reception (after the photographer had left). I did get to go along with them when they were having photos done pre-ceremony. 

I did take this one from afar with my phone. I can't wait to see the photos. 

The area up there was beautiful. I really would have loved to stay longer so maybe a return trip will be in the future. 

These were taken with my phone too. I - as always - have some catching up to do!


  1. Congratulations to your daughter and to the mother of the bride! :)

  2. How wonderful for you all. My son is getting married in a fortnight's time and we are so looking forward to it.

  3. How lovely although I imagine it was very bitter-sweet. That was a very long way to go though.
    Looking forward to seeing photos. :-)

  4. Congratulations to your daughter - what a lovely setting for a wedding.
    Keep on keeping on - it's the only way to go.((hugs))
