A Mother's First Wedding.......................



I have been so busy, as my first born child is getting married on Saturday. I flew to MN this morning to help with the last minute details, offer love & support, and watch my daughter walk down the isle and marry the one who has stolen her heart. As she starts this new chapter of her life, I remember when I was young and had stars in my eyes. It seems like only yesterday that I held her in my arms, kissed boo boos and made them all better, and read stories to her of magical places. It seems like I blinked and a young woman appeared before my eyes. How does this happen? Soon she will have little ones to cradle in her arms and scare monsters away from underneath their beds. Soon she will again discover the magic of Christmas, through the eyes of her children. And one day, she too, will blink and be preparing for a wedding. And I'm not going to miss a minute of it!
I made this card to go with the wedding gift. There were no tricks or secrets, just plain old stickers and card stock. I had been collecting wedding embellishments for months, before I bought my Cricut, so I thought I better use them. I can't wait until the bride and groom receive my secret present to them. Shhhhhh...................it's a secret.
