Something Happy

One year ago today, my beautiful daughter married her perfect match. It was some much needed “happy”, following a year that had been painfully difficult after the death of my mom.

Just a couple of months after her wedding, we were dealt more pain, with the loss of my dad. And then, just 6 weeks later, a world-wide pandemic.

Now, with the stress of a chaotic election just hours away, and COVID numbers running at record highs, I need to dwell in some “happy” right now. So, if that applies to you too, please join me in looking at these beautiful wedding pictures, as I wish the happiest of anniversaries to two of my favorite people. 💕

XOXO, Mama 💕

  9. PS: My Mother also passed away a few months before our daughter’s wedding, so I know how sad that is. She was going to turn 90 a few months after the wedding so I had planned on a birthday cake for her at the reception since all the family was gathered together from far. It was so sad to have her miss these occasions, but she did not suffer and we knew she was in heaven looking done on us all that day.

  10. Beautiful couple and event! Thank you so much for sharing the happy! I think we all need that. Visiting today from the Hearth and Soul link up. Have a great week Niky!

  11. What an absolutely beautiful day. I agree, sometimes it’s nice to just spend a few minutes dwelling on something beautiful and lovely isn’t it?
